Public Meetings on Proposed 4th Runway and Other Airport Projects

(April 3, 2018) The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will host two public scoping meetings at the following times and locations:

Public Scoping #1
Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 7:00 PM
Embassy Suites (main entrance), 4800 S. Tryon St., Charlotte, NC 28217

Public Scoping #2
Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:00 PM
West Mecklenburg High School Cafeteria (entrance at sign for Athletic Fields and Gymnasium)
7400 Tuckaseegee Rd., Charlotte, NC 28214

The agenda for each meeting will be identical. The meetings will help residents learn about the City of Charlotte Aviation Departmentís Proposed Project and help define the purpose and scope of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). All interested parties are welcome and encouraged to attend. See Invitation to Community Groups.

The Proposed Action (or Proposed Project) is made up of four primary Project Elements proposed for construction by 2028:

  • Constructing a New Fourth Parallel Runway 1-19 (including End-Around Taxiways)
  • Expanding Concourse B and Ramp
  • Expanding Concourse C and Ramp
  • Constructing North Parking Garage

See Project Elements Proposed for Construction by 2028.

The Project Sponsorís preferred location for the new runway would be on the west side of the airfield between existing Runway 18C-36C and Runway 18R-36L. Upon completion of the new runway, CLT would have four parallel north/south runways. Construction of the new runway along with terminal and ramp expansion projects would require the decommissioning of Runway 5-23 and relocation of West Boulevard.

For both meetings, the format will include an open house workshop, where residents can view displays or speak with project team members, followed by a public comment session. During the public comment session, members of the public may provide up to a 3-minute statement. Attendees may also choose to provide private comments to a stenographer, complete and submit a comment card, or enter a comment on a computer terminal during the meetings. Oral comments will be transcribed by a stenographer. Members of the public may also mail a comment, submit an email to CLTEIS@faa.gov, or make a comment through www.regulations.gov. All comments received during the scoping comment period, whether provided in writing or verbally, will be given equal weight and be taken into consideration in the preparation of the EIS. The comment period is open until May 7, 2018, however the FAA will continue to accept comments throughout the EIS process and will respond to all comments in the EIS.
