Public Involvement

Community and citizen input were critical to the success and effectiveness of the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport Master Plan. We welcomed feedback at any time about the process and our plans. Please used this page to submit your questions and ideas to be included in our planning.

Information on Public Involvement in the Process

Public meetings and workshops were held to heighten public awareness and solicit feedback from the community and key stakeholders. The public was kept informed using written correspondence, media advertisements, social media and internet outreach, and other communication vehicles that generated interest and acceptance of the Master Plan Update. Frequent and continued communication to keep the public apprised of important information and engaged in the overall planning process was key to ensuring the airport met the community’s needs both then and in the future. An open line of communication was maintained, along with easy-to-understand information to encourage the public to take an active role in the Master Plan Update process.

Why Public Involvement is Important

Community awareness, participation, and input were integral to achieving success, beginning early in the planning process and continuing throughout all phases of the Master Plan Update. Public involvement brought a variety of ideas and solutions into the Master Plan Update process. Overall, this process helped Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport better serve our customers and the public. This public involvement program consisted of different activities and actions to both inform the public and stakeholders, and to obtain input from them.
