Airport Futures is a collaborative effort between the City of Portland, the Port of Portland and the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan community to create a long-range development plan for Portland International Airport (PDX). This process is being guided by a diverse 30-member, regional Planning Advisory Group, and input from key stakeholders. Your organization or neighborhood has been identified as one of these stakeholder groups.

Three major draft products from this planning effort will be released in late May 2009 and available for review and comment at the upcoming Airport Futures public meetings.

1. The Airport Master Plan will outline the preferred development alternative for PDX, including future terminal, airfield, runway, roadway and parking facility needs;
2. The Long-range Land Use Plan will incorporate land use, transportation and natural resource systems in the area surrounding the airport and address community concerns regarding growth at PDX; and
3. The Ongoing Public Involvement Strategy will provide a mechanism for regular input on planning efforts and development at PDX after Airport Futures has concluded.

Please join us at these public meetings to learn more about Airport Futures, ask questions and provide your comments on these draft documents. There will also be an opportunity to learn more about PDX Noise Management, Deicing Enhancement System, and the North Runway Expansion.

Contact: For more information and accessibility information, please call the Port of Portland at (503) 460-4839 or (800) 547-8411, ext. 4839.

    I am moving into a house in NE Portland that seems directly over the airport runway for small aircraft. I had been planning this move for some time and didn’t notice much noise during the winter and spring. NOW, it sounds like a World War II bombing run every DAY and into the night. I’m sick and tired of it and want to know when it’s going to stop. My final move in date is August 23. The planes are driving me crazy but I am committed to the move now and can’t back out. I liked this area because of it’s neighborhood feel, and the QUIET!
    Please respond and let me know when there will be another meeting.
