Santa Barbara MPSanta Barbara Airport is a commercial service airport that is owned and operated by the City of Santa Barbara, California. In addition to scheduled airline activities, the Airport has a thriving business/corporate jet market as well as air cargo, military, and small general aviation activities. The Master Plan analyzed three development areas of the Airport: Airfield; Terminal; and North Landside. Recommended airfield projects consist primarily of improvements to the taxiway system to conform with the recent update to the FAA’s Airport Design Advisory Circular. These projects will reduce the potential for runway incursions and improve overall operational safety and efficiency. Recommended terminal area projects focus on relocating general aviation facilities near the terminal to the north side of the airfield to allow for expanded parking facilities and future additions to the terminal building. Recommended north landside projects involve consolidating general aviation activities by identifying fixed base operator (FBO) development leaseholds as well as new hangars, ramp, aircraft wash rack, and a self-maintenance facility. Land use recommendations were also made to enhance revenue generation near the flight line. Support facility recommendations include the relocation of the Airport’s maintenance yard, which is currently located within a floodway, to a more accessible location that is less prone to flooding. Environmental concerns weighed throughout the planning effort include the Airport’s location within a coastal protection zone and floodplain, and how projects would impact the Goleta Slough, which is a tidal wetland located on Airport property, and potential impacts on sensitive species and culturally sensitive and historic sites and facilities.
