About the TLH Master Plan
The Master Plan for the Tallahassee International Airport (TLH) began in November 2015, and is expected to be completed in 2017. This update was undertaken by the City of Tallahassee to identify a long range, orderly direction for airport development which will yield a safe, efficient, economical, and environmentally acceptable air transportation facility. The study was funded with grants from the Federal Aviation Administration and the Florida Department of Transportation. The previous Master Plan was completed in 2009.
The goal of the Master Plan is to provide alternative options for airport development that address current and future demand, identify the role of the airport in the local, regional and national aviation system, and provide potential utilization or re-use options for existing infrastructure and airport facilities. The master planning activities includes a five-year, ten-year, and twenty-year capital improvement program for future development of the airport, as well as an overview of land use compatibility issues in the airport environs.
In addition, this planning effort will result in the development of a computerized Airport Layout Plan drawing set meeting FAA criterion, including an updated Exhibit ‘A’ Property Map. The Master Plan ultimately will provide the City of Tallahassee and the Tallahassee City Commission with a comprehensive overview of the airport’s needs over the next twenty years, including issues relating to the timing and costs of proposed development based upon appropriate activity triggers.
