Document Description
The Sacramento County Department of Airports has recently completed a review of the existing Master Plan (2007) for the Sacramento International Airport (SMF) (reference Plate NOP-2 for the existing Master Plan exhibit). The current project looks at a development and operation horizon of 20 years (2020 through 2040). The update largely consists of revisions to proposed airport projects and facilities based on revised aviation forecasts. The update looks at previously identified projects and projected growth at SMF. Many of the updates center on the timing of the project (planning phase) along with minor changes to locations and size of facilities. A direct comparison of the Master Plan and MPU facilities and planning phasing are presented in Table NOP-1 and MPU exhibits are presented in Plates NOP-3 through 6; notable changes are highlighted below: • Removal of the third runway and taxiway system; • Relocating the economy parking lot from south of I-5 to north of I-5, east of Airport Boulevard; • Changing the economy parking lot south of I-5 to commercial uses and moving it to PAL 4 (2033-2038); • Changing the location of Elkhorn Boulevard extension; • Revising the acreage, location and phasing of the commercial development proposed north of I-5; and • Movement of the new cargo building and apron from the southwest side to the north airfield, east of Runway 16R and increasing the size from 226k thousand square feet (kft2) to 950kft2. o The Cargo Facility is comprised of three buildings (sortation building, a ground crew building, and an equipment maintenance building), associated parking, and a taxilane on 192 acres on the north side of the airport (Plate NOP-7). As shown on the conceptual plan, the three buildings would total 950,000 square feet, have 13 aircraft parking spaced, 1,314 parking spaces, and 343 trailer parking spaces. Access to the project site is provided on Earhart Drive from West Elverta Road. Intersection improvements for Earhart Drive and West Elverta Road, which include widening and signalization, are proposed as part of this project.
