Welcome to the Lake Havasu City Municipal Airport Master Plan project website. This website is created to provide a venue to inform interested members of the public on the master planning process, to distribute draft Master Plan material, and to allow the public to provide input into the study.


The Lake Havasu City Municipal Airport Master Plan has been initiated by the Lake Havasu City to properly plan for the timely development of the airport to ensure its continued viability from a functional, social, and environmental perspective.  Development of an Airport Master Plan is a step toward achieving continuity in the development of community services for residents and commercial/industrial interests in the city and surrounding region.  The Master Plan will provide Lake Havasu City Municipal Airport with a comprehensive overview of the airport’s needs over the next 20-year timeframe, including a preferred development plan, costs for this development, and a clear plan of action.


The Master Plan will act to define the current and future role of Lake Havasu City Municipal Airport in the local, regional, state, and national aviation system.  The master planning activities will also provide a capital improvement program for future airport development, as well as an environmental overview delineating the relationship of the airport with the surrounding environment.  In addition, this planning effort will result in the development of a computerized Airport Layout Plan (ALP) meeting Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Arizona Department of Transportation – Aeronautics Group (ADOT) criteria.


Lake Havasu City Municipal Airport is of interest to many within the local community including citizens, businesses, community organizations, City officials, airport users/tenants, and aviation organizations. The Master Plan will be closely coordinated with a Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) that is made up of government representatives, airport users/tenants, and local community representatives.  In addition, a series of Public Information Workshops will be conducted at key milestones during the study process.


The Master Plan is being prepared by Coffman Associates, Inc., who is an airport consulting firm that specializes in planning, environmental, and land use studies.  The Lake Havasu City Municipal Airport Master Plan will be prepared in accordance with FAA and ADOT guidelines and industry-accepted practices, including Advisory Circular 150/5070-6B, Airport Master Plans and Advisory Circular 150/5300-13A, Airport Design.  This study is anticipated to take approximately 18 months to complete which includes time for agency reviews and approvals of both the Master Plan forecasts and ALP drawings.


Please download and review the draft materials as they come available in the Project Documents section of this website.  If you have any comments or questions regarding the Master Plan material, please feel free to submit them to the planning team here.  Comments received will be given due consideration during the preparation of the Master Plan.
