For Meeting of: September 21, 2021 ITEM TITLE: Resolution authorizing the adoption of the Yakima Air Terminal- McAllister Field's Airport Layout Plan Update with Narrative Report SUBMITTED BY: Robert K. Peterson,Airport Director, 509-575-6149 SUMMARY EXPLANATION: Yakima City Council adopted the Yakima Air Terminal-McAllister Field's Airport Master Plan in 2015, which highlights airport development over the short, intermediate, and long-term in order to meet future aviation demands. Since adopting this instrumental plan, the airport has witnessed tremendous growth in the form of passenger and cargo activities; ground transportation; aircraft operations, commercial and hangar development. Given this rapid growth, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) required the City to update the Airport Layout Plan (ALP) and provide a Narrative Report properly reflecting these changes. As part of the ALP update, the 2015 Airport Master Plan report was modernized to reflect current information with an up-to-date aviation demand forecast through 2040. The updated forecast demand was then incorporated into the plan's facility requirements, an updated alternatives analysis, and updated Capital Improvement Program (CI P). Enclosed is a memo summarizing the key updates to the Airport Layout Plan as well as an approval letter from the Federal Aviation Administration.Airport staff, Federal Aviation Administration, and Century West Engineering believe the Airport Layout Plan Update with Narrative Report was developed including valuable information from key stakeholders to provide the airport a functional product that encompasses all aspects of the community's needs as well as aviation users.

Peterson,Airport Director Cc: Robert Harrison,City Manager Date: Wednesday September 1, 2021 Re: City Council Adoption of Airport Layout Plan Update with Narrative Report Yakima City Council adopted the Yakima Air Terminal-McAllister Field's Airport Master Plan in 2015, which highlights airport development over the short, intermediate,and long-term in order to meet future aviation demands. Since adopting this instrumental plan,the airport has witnessed tremendous growth in the form of passenger and cargo activities; ground transportation; aircraft operations, commercial and hangar development. Given this rapid growth, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) required the City to update the Airport Layout Plan (ALP)and provide a Narrative Report properly reflecting these changes. On July 17, 2018, the City of Yakima contracted with Century West Engineering to assist the airport in updating the Airport Layout Plan to include obstruction data obtained from an Airport Geographic Information System (AGIS) survey. As part of the ALP update, the 2015 Airport Master Plan report was modernized to reflect current information with an up-to-date aviation demand forecast through 2040. The updated forecast demand was then incorporated into the plan's facility requirements, an updated alternatives analysis,and updated Capital Improvement Program (CIP). Specifically,the plan addressed the following crucial areas: • Collected AG IS survey data to inform the ALP update and planning analysis; • Updated aviation demand forecast of activity for FAA approval; • Determined runway design codes for Runway 4/22,Taxiway B;and the appropriate applicable design standards; • Determined airfield wide design codes, standards, geometry, operational flow, movement/non- movement, and parking needs; • Addressed non-standard conditions and confusing geometry; • Updated wind data analysis and runway FAA funding eligibility; • Reviewed South Airpark and/or other development alternatives; • Evaluated land acquisition opportunities;and • Identified other facility upgrades or improvements to support capacity and operations. 6 Summary of Aviation Demands and Facility Requirements Two critical components of the project evaluated the 20-year forecast which projections are used to assess the type, timing and allocation of future airport infrastructure, equipment, and service needs to support master plan facility recommendations, alternatives, and airport project funding strategjes. Overall, the Yakima's aviation activity is projected to increase about one to two percent annually throughout the 20-year forecast period, which is highly influenced by Yakima's economy and future demands for aeronautical services. A summary of these activities is highlighted within Tablet-1: 2020 Forecast Summ ary. Additionally, the plan looked at the existing facilities at Yakima and assessed their ability to accommodate the forecast activity levels. Any capadty deficiencies were identified as were actions needed to correctthem. Issues addressedwere the ultimate configuration of the airfield, the passenger terminal, air cargo facilities, aircraft hangar and apron areas, Fixed Base Operator(FBO)facilities, access and vehicle parking utilities, and aviation supportfacilities. A summary of the facility needs is presented in Table 1-2:Summary of Facility Requirements.

Forecast—Mead&Hunt, Century West Engineering 7 "Fable 1-2: Summary of Facility Requirements Actual Conclusions Airfield System The wind coverage and capacity eeds at YKM are met by a single runway.Runway 9/27,at 7,604 feet,does not provide the take-off length for the future design aircraft. A future runway length of 7,800 feet is recommended for the E175. Maintaining Runway 4/22 at a future length of 4,000 feet is recommended due to a variety of operational factors described in this narrative. Passenger Terminal The existing passenger terminal building needs to be expanded and upgraded to meet future needs. If renovations or replaced are deferred,terminal layout and maintenance issues may require action to be taken sooner to maintain an acceptable level of service. Automobile Parking The current public parking lot is adequate to meet current needs. Parking lot expansion is recommended if airline frequency increases. The overflow parking lot should be maintained for peak travel seasons and charter flights. It is also recommended that the rent-a-car ready/return and rental car parking area be expanded prior to this time. Air Cargo Although air cargo is forecast to continue to consist of feeder service using the C208, ATR-42,ATR-72, Beechcraft 1900,and E120 aircraft,additional space will need to be provided in the future,either by remarking existing pavement or by constructing new. Based Aircraft Hangar With the growth in based aircraft that has been forecast,as well as the existing Storage unmet demand for hangar space,additional area for hangar development will need to be made available for future development. FBO and support Expanded FBO facilities are required to provide support for the general aviation facility expansion community.These facilities will provide not only aircraft maintenance hangars,but also pilot lounge areas,area for fueling aircraft,and sufficient space for transient aircraft parking. Fueling The current system is adequate,assuming the private sector continues to upgrade 4 their facilities and improve delivery as needed. Snow Removal Expand the existing facility to provide sufficient parking for the airports current Equipment& number of snow removal equipment.Or relocate the maintenance facility to another Maintenance Building site that better suits the needs of the airport. Air Traffic Control To remedy the line of sight concerns,it is recommended that FAA increase the Tower height of the tower to improve visibility for the Air Traffic Controllers. Conclusion Yakima Air Terminal-McAllister Field staff, Federal Aviation Administration, and Century West Engineering feel the Airport Layout Plan Update with Narrative Report was developed including valuable information from key stakeholders to provide the airport a functional product that encompasses all aspects of the community's needs as well as aviation users. The document is a key element, which will allow City officials and airport staff to make informative as well as timely decisions to meet growing demands. Upon receiving City Council's approval, the airport will work closely with elected officials, key community leaders, and aviation industry experts in further developing the Yakima community's primary economic engine.

These documents were developed based on the conclusions of the 2020 Airport Master Plan study. This determination does not constitute FAA approval or disapproval of the physical development involved in the proposal. It is a determination with respect to the safe and efficient use of navigable airspace by aircraft and with respect to the safety of persons and property on the ground. This ALP approval is conditioned on acknowledgment that any development on airport property requiring Federal environmental approval must receive such written approval from FAA prior to commencement of the subject development. This ALP approval is also conditioned on acceptance of the plan under local land use laws. The FAA encourages appropriate agencies to adopt land use and height restrictive zoning based on the plan. Approval of the plan does not indicate that the United States (FAA)will participate in the cost of any development proposed. AIP funding requires evidence of eligibility and justification at the time a funding request is submitted for consideration. When construction of any proposed structure or development indicated on the plan is undertaken, such construction requires a normal 45-day advance notification to FAA for review in accordance with applicable Federal Aviation Regulations(i.e., Parts 77, 157, 152, etc.). More notice is generally beneficial to ensure that all statutory, regulatory, technical and operational issues can be addressed in a timely manner. ALP The ALP consists of Sheets 1 through 17. It was prepared in accordance with current FAA airport design standards, FAA Standard Operating Procedure 2.00. The last ALP for YKM was approved by FAA in 2015. Major changes in this 2020 ALP from the previous version include: + Runway 09/27 o Future runway length will increase to 7,800 feet, based on the future design aircraft (Embraer 175). + Runway 04/22 o Existing and future ARC is B-II. o Existing design aircraft is the Beechcraft Baron and future is the King Air 350. o Future runway length will increase to 4,000 feet and narrowed to 75 feet based on B-Il standards. o Runway 22 end is reconfigured to mitigate a known hotspot and eliminate the aligned taxiway. + Taxiways o Taxiway A is currently operating under a MOS that was developed to account for the Q400. This specifies a taxiway width of 64 feet, with 20-foot shoulders with the exception of Taxiway A5, which has a width of 75 feet with 35-foot shoulders. WESTTURY Page 1 of 2 0.0.4.441; FLY • o: Y' .IVY Airy o Taxiway Al reconfiguration planned to create a 90-degree connector taxiway. o Future partial parallel taxiway is planned to connect Taxiway C to the Runway 27 end on the south side of Runway 9/27. o Taxiway B is reconfigured at the Runway 22 end to remove the aligned taxiway, and create 90-degree connector taxiways to Runway 22. + Landside o Future taxilanes are planned in the south landside area (formally known as South Airpark) to support future hangar development. o Future reconfigured apron, taxilanes, and fuel island in the northeast landside area (adjacent to McAllister Museum). o Future expansion of the Snow Removal Equipment(SRE) building. o Future reconstruction of the Terminal building and parking infrastructure. Exhibit A The Exhibit A—Airport Property Map consists of Sheet 17. It has been prepared in accordance with FAA Standard Operating Procedure 3.00 and developed based on the following: + Airport parcels o Existing fee and easement parcels are based on recorded conveyance documents obtained through Airport and local records. o Future and ultimate airport property interests are shown based on the development plans and design standards shown on the ALP. + Existing fee and easement parcels, as well as recorded encumbrance boundaries, were drawn as legally described in conveyance documents. + A review of the Federal grant history and associated parcel naming convention was completed. The last Exhibit A- Property Map was updated in 2015. Major changes in this October 2020 Exhibit A Update from the previous version includes: + Updated existing property boundary. + Updated property acquisition planned during the 20-year planning period, including the agricultural land west of Runway 4 between S. 361h Ave and airport property; agricultural land between Taxiway C and 161h Ave along Ahtanum Rd.
