Aviation Department to Hold Open House on Environmental Assessment for New KCI Airport Terminal


The City of Kansas City, Mo., Aviation Department will host a public information open house to obtain comments on the preliminary findings of its Environmental Assessment for the proposed replacement of the airport passenger terminals at Kansas City International Airport.

In 2008, the City Council approved a resolution that adopts the 2008 KCI Master Plan and recommends construction of a New Single Terminal to enhance passenger convenience and efficiency. The Aviation Department commissioned a Program Criteria Document to guide the future design of the terminal and an updated Terminal Area Master Plan, including site location, and appropriate feasibility studies for the Federal Aviation Administration, that will serve as the framework to guide decision-making and overall design for the New Terminal. This includes an Environmental Assessment.

This open house will not include a formal presentation or discussion regarding the decision of whether to build or not build a new single terminal at the airport. The purpose of the open house is to discuss preliminary findings related to the potential environmental impacts of a new terminal at the airport. The Environmental Assessment analyzes several environmental issues that may be affected by the proposed project. The environmental topics include: noise, land use, air quality, wetlands, land acquisition, historic properties, surface transportation, construction impacts, and other possible issues.

The public information open house will be held on June 26, 2013, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the following location:

June 26, 2013
KCI Expo Center
11730 NW Ambassador Drive
Kansas City, Missouri 64153
