Caltrans Airport Forecasting Study: The Role of California Airports in Smart Growth and Economic Vitality

This study seeks to determine the degree to which metropolitan planning organizations (MPO) and regional transportation planning agencies (RTPA) in California have integrated airports into their regional Sustainable Community Strategies and Regional Transportation Plans, measuring the effectiveness of integration in terms of socioeconomic impacts. It provides MPOs and airport managers with an understanding of how each type of airport has potential to stimulate economic growth and guide them to exploit their potential with some best practices. It explores airports as employment agglomeration economies, as auxiliary or support areas for nearby agglomeration economies, and as landbanking opportunities for future development. It uses qualitative structured interviews to complement a set of quantitative and qualitative economic case studies. The report concludes with a discussion of how the airside and landside categories can be used to support California land use and transportation planning,
