Burbank Airport: Draft Environmental Impact Meetings

September 24 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Bob Hope “Hollywood Burbank” Airport Replacement Terminal Project is Available Today!

The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena ­A­irport Authority is proposing to build a new, 14-gate passenger terminal building in the northeast section of the airport. It would replace the existing, 14-gate passenger terminal in the southeast section of the airport which does not meet current FAA safety standards because of its proximity to the taxiways and runways. A 45-day public review and comment period for the Draft EIS begins today.

Please Join Us!

The FAA will host two virtual public workshops on the Draft EIS on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020 from 1 to 3 p.m. and again from 6 to 8 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT), and a virtual public hearing on the Draft EIS on Thursday, Sept. 24, 2020 from 6 to 9 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). FAA representatives will present information about the proposed project and the Draft EIS. Members of the public will be able to submit written questions, which FAA representatives will answer live following the presentation. Virtual public meetings enable public participation in the environmental review process while maintaining safety and compliance with local, state and federal regulations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

To comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the FAA has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) to assess the potential impacts associated with the construction and operation of a 14-gate replacement passenger terminal building.

The existing passenger terminal would be demolished, and parallel Taxiways A and C would be extended full length to the ends of Runways 15-33 and 8-26, respectively. The project also would include building a 45,900-square-foot aircraft apron, public parking structure, airline cargo building, passenger terminal access road, Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting station, central utility plant and other infrastructure. A number of structures and facilities would be removed or demolished.
