The process of planning a replacement airport for Friedman Memorial takes another important step next Wednesday, Dec. 8, when a Community Visioning Workshop takes place at Wood River High School in Hailey. The workshop—in the school's Distance Learning Lab—begins at 5 p.m. It is open to all interested parties.
With key community leaders on hand, this workshop is intended to give the public a chance to help shape the guiding principles and objectives for the design of a replacement airport. Those in attendance will have a chance to provide their input at the workshop, which is the first of three scheduled for that purpose.
A Sustainability Workshop is scheduled for February and a second Visioning Workshop in April.
Topics open for discussion at next Wednesday's workshop include such questions as:
( What should the mission statement be for a replacement airport?
( For whom should the airport be designed?
( What local and regional cultural influences should be reflected in the airport's design?
( What forms of transportation should be available at the replacement airport?
