The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority is inviting residents from local communities to attend the first public workshop to review details of the Niagara Falls International Airport sustainable master plan on Wednesday, June 4.

The informational workshop will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the Niagara Falls International Airport, 2035 Niagara Falls Blvd. (lower level). Free parking will be available in the general passenger lots for those attending the meeting. Refreshments will be served.

William R. Vanecek, NFTA director of aviation, said, "We welcome the opportunity to work with the Niagara community to help craft a master plan that ensures the airport will increase its positive economic impact for the region, while simultaneously creating a positive experience for all users of the facility.

McFarland Johnson, the NFIA master plan consultants, along with representatives from the NFTA will be present to host the interactive workshop and discuss the draft findings to date.

This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity for interested citizens from neighboring communities to learn about and contribute feedback regarding potential future development at the airport. Materials for the 20-year planning horizon will include an overview of existing facilities, forecasts of aviation activity, facility requirements and environmental findings.

This will be the first of two public meetings associated with this project. A second meeting will occur in the fall.
