Document Description
The Joby Aero, Inc. (Joby) Aviation Manufacturing Facility Project (project) consists of the construction of a new 580,000 square foot (ft2) single story steel manufacturing building which would be used for the production of light-weight, all-electric, vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircrafts. The building would be located at the Marina Municipal Airport (Marina Airport or Airport) within the City of Marina, California. The overall building would consist of approximately 580,000 ft2; however, it is anticipated to be constructed in two phases, of approximately 290,000 ft2 per phase, with the second phase being completed approximately three to five years after the first phase is operational. The project site would be located on existing aircraft tarmac, identified in the Airport Master Plan as the North, Middle, and South Tarmacs. The tarmac areas are designated for aviation development in the current Marina Municipal Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) and are considered by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to be improved aviation land that must be reserved for aviation uses . Development of the project would bring the land use back into compliance with the ALUCP and Airport Master Plan.
