Public Events

Four public events are expected to take place for this project to ensure the public has all the information it needs to understand the process, as well as providing the opportunity to ask questions and provide input.

Note: The topics below are subject to change per event. 

Public Event #1: Public Event #2:
  • Introduction to the MSP Airport Long-Term
    Comprehensive Plan Process
  • Guiding Principles
  • Existing Conditions
  • Aircraft Activity Forecasts
  • Facility Requirements
  • Airfield Capacity Study Update


Public Event #3: Public Event #4:
  • Alternative Design Concepts
  • Recommended Development & Phasing
  • Environmental/Land Use Considerations
  • Airfield Capacity Study Update
  • Review Draft Plan
  • Take comments


The Plan may not incorporate all of the input provided by the public. The project team will listen to concerns, input and aspirations shared by the public and, when possible, make changes to alternatives developed to reflect public input. Additionally, feedback will be provided to the public on how it influenced decisions in the plan. 

Stakeholder Advisory Panel

The objective of the Stakeholder Advisory Panel (“Panel”) is to involve major stakeholder groups and ensure public concerns and aspirations are heard and considered.  

Specifically, the Panel is an advisory board representing major stakeholder groups that will be closely involved in the planning process. The Panel serves several important functions, including:

  • Representing a broad range of stakeholder groups
  • Receiving information about the environmental review and sharing it with constituencies
  • Providing input to the environmental review as the voice of key stakeholders
  • Ensuring public concerns and aspirations are considered
  • In some cases, providing technical advice to the Project Team

It is important to note that the Panel serves only in an advisory capacity. While the Panel may offer opinions, advice, and guidance, the MAC has the sole discretion to act on the Panel recommendations.

Meeting materials will be posted on the documents and links page when they become available.
