Draft Airport Multimodal Accessibility Plan comments sought
Members of the public are invited to comment on the draft Airport Multimodal Accessibility Plan (AMAP) released by SANDAG in June.
Senate Bill 10, authored by Senator Christine Kehoe and passed in 2007, specifies that SANDAG, in collaboration with the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority prepare an AMAP to evaluate potential ground access improvements to airports identified in the Airport Authority’s Regional Aviation Strategic Plan (RASP). The RASP evaluated ways to optimize the public use of airports in the region and was finalized by the Airport Authority in March 2011. The RASP and AMAP serve as inputs into the 2050 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). On June 24, 2011, the SANDAG Board of Directors released the draft AMAP for a 60-day public review period.
Ground access improvements proposed in the draft AMAP were developed using a number of resources, including the 2030 RTP and draft 2050 RTP transportation networks, Destination Lindbergh planning studies, airport planning and community planning documents, RASP aviation forecasts, high-speed train studies, and public and stakeholder input.
