With a winter storm expected to impact the region on Thursday, MidAmerica St. Louis Airport officials are rescheduling an open house and workshop from that day to Thursday, Nov. 29
The event is intended to let people know about proposed improvements to the passenger terminal.
The event will now be 1 to 5 p.m. on the 29th at the MidAmerica Airport Terminal Building, 9656 Air Terminal Drive, Mascoutah.
The improvements are being considered as part of the process to update the existing Airport Master Plan and in the wake of significant growth in passenger traffic at MidAmerica Airport. In the past three years alone, total annual air passengers have increased from 65,000 in 2015 to over 244,000 in 2017.
Airport representatives will be available in the passenger terminal building’s baggage claim area to provide details on plans for future improvements to the passenger terminal and other airport facilities. There will be no formal presentation, so people can stop by at any time during the Open House. Exhibit boards and handouts will be available at the event for all to review. Copies of all materials are also available for review on the Airport Master Plan website, at https://www.blvmasterplan.com/participate/public-meetings/
Participants can provide comments in writing at the event and/or through the Airport Master Plan website. Free 1-hour parking is available for those who wish to attend the Open House and the terminal building is ADA compliant.
