The Iowa City Airport Commission seeks public input on the Airport's Strategic Plan

The Iowa City Airport Commission is asking residents to complete a brief online survey. The purpose of the survey is to provide information to the Airport Commission as it discusses the airport's role in our community. The Commission will use this information as it develops a 5-year strategic plan to guide the future activities of the Airport Commission and airport staff.

The survey is available online through Thursday, Nov. 10, 2022. All responses to the survey are anonymous. 

The Iowa City Airport Commission is comprised of five members appointed by the Iowa City City Council. The Airport Commission is directly responsible for the planning and oversight of the Iowa City Municipal Airport to ensure that the airport serves the general aviation needs of the greater Iowa City community. Survey results will assist the Commission in understanding the public's use of the airport and guide it as it develops the airport's Strategic Plan 2024-2028.
