Airport Futures is currently half way through its the planning process. Between now and June 2009, the project’s subcommittees will draft three major products:
You- the noble public – are encouraged to join the drafting process, either by attending the larger Planning Advisory Group meetings or joining one of the project’s subcommittees. Public review of the draft products will begin summer 2009.

Why is this important? Because this is a key conduit for shaping how the Port of Portland is going to develop.

NECN is represented on this project’s Planning Advisory Group by Patrick Metzger and Denny Stoecklin. However, they always welcome more support and input from local residents and businesses.
