Airport board to discuss ordinance

The Moffat County Airport Advisory Board will meet to discuss a land use zoning ordinance Tuesday.

The meeting is at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Moffat County Courthouse, 221 Victory Way.

Ben Crippen, a member of the board, said he wants the public to attend this meeting because the subject of the meeting affects many residents of Craig and Moffat County.

“This is a critical meeting regarding land use that will affect a lot of people,” he said.

Representatives from the Colorado Department of Transportation will attend the meeting to discuss imaginary surface area affected by aircraft using the Craig/Moffat County Airport.

Chris Pomeroy, a CDOT senior aviation planner, will make a presentation regarding land use ordinances and then answer questions from the public.

Crippen said residents of Craig and Moffat County should attend this meeting because it will keep them informed about what’s going on at the airport.

“It is critical that (the public) be involved and know what’s going on,” he said.

The meeting is more of an informative one, Crippen said.

He added that this is one of several meetings that will be focused around funding for the airport.

“This meeting is contingent to getting zoning in place to continue getting (Federal Aviation Administration) funding,” Crippen said.

One major project at the airport is being partially funded by the FAA. On June 13, Moffat County Commissioners approved a bid for more than $500,000 to repair the airport’s apron.

Tuesday’s meeting will have a discussion period set aside for an update on the apron reconstruction.
