Input sought on current operations and future improvements at airport in Novato
San Rafael, CA - The future of Marin County’s only public airport will be the focus of the Gnoss Field Vision Workshop on July 17 in Novato.
Gnoss Field, located just north of downtown Novato on the eastern side of Highway 101, is the site of about 97,000 flight operations per year and is a popular destination for both business and pleasure pilots.
The Marin County Aviation Commission is hosting the workshop to present background information, discuss opportunities and solicit input about the airport. Attendees will learn more about current operations and future plans and have the opportunity to provide suggestions or comments on potential improvements. Public comments and ideas presented at the workshop will be captured in a summary report to be presented to the Marin County Board of Supervisors through the Aviation Commission later this fall.
Although the workshop report will be used to inform the Board and County staff, no actions will be taken at the workshop nor is it associated with the environmental review of a runway extension project. The Board of Supervisors will be acting on the runway extension environmental review separately, also to occur this fall.
The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at the council chambers of Novato City Hall, 901 Sherman Ave.
