REGIONAL AIRPORT PLANNING: A SYSTEMATIC MODEL

THE HISTORY OF AIRPORT PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT, PARTICIPATION BY VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONS AND ISSUES AND ALTERNATE FUTURES ARE EXAMINED IN EACH OF FOUR CASES: SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, PUGET SOUND REGION, AND PORTLAND (OREGON) METROPOLITAN AREA. REGIONAL AIRPORT PLANNING, AS DISTINGUISHED FROM PLANNING OF A SINGLE AIRPORT AND PLANNING FOR THE NATIONAL AIR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM, IS FOUND TO BE A RELATIVELY RECENT ACTIVITY IN MOST LARGE METROPOLITAN AREAS. REGIONAL AIRPORT AUTHORITIES ARE NOT EXPECTED TO EXIST AS A COMMON SOLUTION TO ORGANIZATIONAL PROBLEMS IN LARGE METROPOLITAN AREAS IN THE 1990 TIME-FRAME. AMONG THE REASONS FOR THIS CONCLUSION ARE THE DIFFICULTIRES INVOLVED IN TRANSFERRING LARGE PROFIT MAKING AIRPORTS TO A NEW AUTHORITY, OR, CONVERSELY REQUIRING THAT LARGE, EXISTING OPERATIORS EXPAND TO INCLUDE A HOST OF AIRPORTS WHICH ARE FINANCIALLY NOT SELF-SUSTAINING. JOINT AGREEMENTS BETWEEN OPERATING AGENCIES ARE SEEN AS AN EVOLUTIONAY MEANS OF TRANSFERRING FACILITIES AND RESOLVING JURISDICTIONAL QUESTIONS. INVESTMENT DECISIONS REMAIN WITH THE DEVELOPER, BUT THE OTHER PARTICIPANTS CONTRIBUTE A FRAME OF REFERENCE IN AN ATTEMPT TO INCLUDE BOTH SOCIAL COST ACCOUNTING AND BOARDER RATIONALE /AUTHOR/
