Airport Master Plan

Adopted April, 2015 by the Board of County Commissioners, Routt County, Colorado

The Master Plan is a 20 year plan to understand the needs of current and future users of the airport. This is important to ensure that safe and orderly development occurs in a manner that is reflective of the community’s values and goals. The plan is developed through a purposeful, inclusive and educational process.

Study Goals

The purpose of this process was to update the Yampa Valley Regional Airport (YVRA or HDN) Master Plan and Airport Layout Plan drawing set (ALP) and determine the extent, type, and schedule of development needed to accommodate future aviation demand at the Airport over a 20-year planning period. The current HDN ALP was revised to reflect updated geometry from design and construction in 2015. This Master Plan was updated in 2015, with the following main objectives:

  • Determine the condition and adequacy of existing facilities over the 20-year planning period
  • Forecast aviation activity, including operations and based aircraft
  • Recommend needed facility improvements to accommodate forecast demand and safety requirements while addressing the values and economic growth plan of the community
  • Prepare a financial plan that considers HDN’s budget, revenue, and expenses as well as future funding scenarios
