Master Plan

Master Plan Project Information

An Airport Master Plan is a comprehensive, long-range planning document that serves as a guide for future airport growth and demand. The Plan looks to anticipate necessary airport facilities and infrastructure over the next 10-year and 20-year planning horizons in a logical and financially feasible manner. The previous master plan was completed in 2008. This updated master plan draft was completed in 2019 in coordination with Mead & Hunt, Inc., FAA, ADOT and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport staff, and will be scheduled for acceptance by the PMGAA Board of Directors in 2020.

Master Plan related materials are available for review below. Throughout the course of the master planning process, draft chapters of the Airport Master Plan referred to as “Working Papers” were made available in this location for viewing once approved by Gateway Staff. Documents found on this website will be updated routinely to provide the most current information.

The success of the new Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Master Plan required strategic and proactive stakeholder involvement. Two committees, a Stakeholders Working Group and the Technical Advisory Committee, were formed to assist in the guidance of the Master Plan. Public open houses and multiple Airport Board briefings also occurred in drafting the Plan. Information & materials that went into drafting the Plan are available for viewing below.

Stakeholder Working Group (SWG)
The Stakeholder Working Group (SWG) consisted of aviation and non-aviation constituents throughout the region to provide organizational perspectives and opinions during key project milestones. The SWG met four times to provide strategic guidance and input on the information gathered during the Plan process.

Airport Master Plan Open House & PMGAA Board Meetings
Two open house format public information meetings were held during the master planning process. The intent of these meetings was to disseminate information about the Master Plan and give the public an opportunity to learn, provide comments, and ask questions about future projects at the Airport. The PMGAA Board of Directors also received five (5) briefings on the Plan status throughout the Plan’s development.
