Of particular focus was planning necessary to accommodate heavy aircraft use of the runway and the next runway extension and associated approaches to accommodate large corporate jet traffic from both based and itinerant operators.

With expected significant growth in based aircraft and expanding corporate aircraft operations, the runway and taxiway expansion and terminal area development proved instrumental development guidance for the city.
