Airport Master Plan

To view the current Airport Master Plan (adopted in 2010), click here


The Nampa Municipal Airport Master Plan is a comprehensive study of the airport that describes short- (0 to 5 year), medium- (6 to 10 year), and long- (11 to 20 year) term development plans necessary to meet current and future aviation demand.

As a plan and guideline for the community, an airport master plan is regularly revisited with support from the FAA, State and local entities. The last airport planning effort was completed in 2010 and can be found on the link above. This document was the plan and guidance presented to the community nearly a decade ago, using then-current best information. The 2010 planning document remains available for reference but will not influence future planning.

A new Airport Master Plan project is currently underway. This is a completely new plan that takes a fresh look at airport infrastructure, business and recreational users, current FAA safety standards and current land use guidelines. This new plan values community input through the public involvement process. The goal of any community planning effort is to match the planned facility with the needs of the community it serves; this study is no different.

The elements of the Master Planning process vary in level of detail and complexity depending upon the size, function, and concerns of each airport. Compared to other Idaho general aviation airports, the Nampa Municipal Airport Master Plan will be a relatively complex study, incorporating significant survey, planning, and public outreach efforts. The Nampa Municipal Airport Master Plan will present a way forward for the airport by providing a framework to meet aviation demand that is accountable for the potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts of the airport on the community.

Invitation to participate in updated airport master plan

Over the next year, the City of Nampa will be updating its long-range master plan for the Nampa Municipal Airport. Nampa’s current airport master plan was developed in 2010. Growth and development in the area have resulted in increasing aviation demands. The new master plan will address aviation safety, capacity and the compatibility of land uses around the airport. The completed plan will provide a roadmap for both short-and long-term development.
