Kittitas (pronounced 'kit-i-tass') County is located in central Washington
State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
Kittitas County is preparing an Airport Layout Plan (ALP) Update and Needs Assessment Study for Bowers
Field (ELN) to address current and future airport needs. The project is being conducted in cooperation
with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Washington Department of Transportation
- Aviation Division (WSDOT).
The purpose of the Airport Needs Assessment Study is to update the planning evaluations conducted in
the 2004 Bowers Field Airport Master Plan Update1 (referred to hereafter as
"the 2004 Master Plan") to reflect current airport conditions, activity trends, facility needs, and
FAA airport planning and design standards. The study will supplement the 2004 Master Plan and will update
specific master plan elements affected by the needs assessment.
Funding for the Airport Needs Assessment Study and ALP Update is being provided through an FAA Airport
Improvement Program (AIP) grant (95%) with a local match provided by Kittitas County and the Washington
Department of Transportation Aviation Division (2.5% each). The AIP is a dedicated fund administered
by FAA with the specific purpose of maintaining and improving the nation's public use airports.
The AIP is funded exclusively through fees paid by users of general aviation and commercial aviation.
