Airport Master Plans and Final ALP Reports
As Oregon Department of Aviation assists Oregon airports with the process of updating their Master Plans and Final ALP Reports, those updated reports will be made available on this web site. The goal of a master plan is to provide guidelines for future airport development which will satisfy aviation demand in a financially feasible manner, while at the same time resolving the aviation, environmental, and socioeconomic issues existing in a community.

Aurora State Airport Noise Mitigation Program
In May 2002, an independent national noise consulting firm completed a critical noise mitigation study for Aurora State Airport. Working closely with the consultants was a local public advisory board who named themselves "DECIBEL." The resulting report represents the culmination of months of on-site noise monitoring, a survey of all based aircraft owners to ascertain the types of aircraft that regularly utilize the airport, and hours of examination and discussion by DECIBEL. Ultimately, all data was synthesized into the FAA Integrated Noise Model to calculate the unique noise contours being generated at the airport - and unique suggestions formulated to minimize noise issues in this historic Oregon colony.
