Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport
Project: Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport was seeking a runway extension and an air terminal expansion.
Challenge: The Airport needed to follow the necessary master plan and environmental notification requirements to provide the public ample opportunities to submit their comments whether they be supportive or opposed. The Airport faced neighborhood opposition and needed to ensure the process was fair and objective.
Strategy & Execution: MPA provided meeting notifications and project-related material via websites, newspaper advertisements and personalized invitations to stakeholders and neighbors. Further, MPA organized various workshops and venues to allow the public to comment on the project.
Outcome: Successfully completed the Master Plan phase of the process and completed the Environmental Impact Study and Environmental Impact Report. The project received a 5-0 vote from the Board of Supervisors.
