Planning & Development

  • Our Mission:
    To encourage, foster, and participate with political subdivisions to provide a balanced, safe system of airports which enhance air transportation and the commerce of the state by implementing the State Airport Systems Plan, including the preservation of the existing system and expansion to meet aviation demands.

    The Planning and Development Section has project management responsibilities for state and federal grant-funded projects at Michigan's public-use airports. Staff provide project support relative to airport master planning, environmental review, airspace review, tall structure permitting, zoning assistance, and real estate project management, as well as graphic support using both CAD and GIS.

    Planning and Development is also responsible for program oversight and assistance with Disadvantaged Business Enterprises at Michigan airports. The Michigan Air Service Program is only offered in years when sufficient funding is available.
