Oregon's third busiest airport plans for the future.

The Bend Municipal Airport relies heavily on funding from the FAA.  The FAA determined that an update to the Master Plan is warranted due to continuing increasing operations.  The plan kicks off this Fall.  The primary user and neighbors will be key stakeholders in the planning process.
