Sonoma County on Friday released a draft environmental report on a proposed $84 million expansion of Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport.
The county wants to extend and reconfigure the airport’s two runways, replace the passenger terminal, relocate the air traffic control tower, expand airport buffer zones and make other improvements.
The projects would be completed between 2015 and 2030 and most of the cost would be paid from federal aviation funds.
The county will hold an informational open house on the project Aug. 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa.
The county planning commission will hold a meeting on the plan at 6 p.m. on Sept. 1 at the Windsor High School Theater.
The deadline for public comments is Sept. 19.
The environmental report can be viewed at local libraries and the airport’s website, www.sonomacountyairport.org.
