Kingsley Field JLUS Implementation Public Workshop

The City of Klamath Falls, in cooperation with Klamath County, Crater Lake-Klamath Regional Airport, and Kingsley Field, hosted a public workshop on Tuesday, October 15 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Klamath Falls City Council Chambers.  The purpose of the workshop was to present information on the proposed draft Airport Safety and Hazard Protection Overlay (ASHPO) Zone being developed for Klamath Falls and Klamath County.  These overlay zones are updates to the existing overlay zones for the City and County and will be used to guide compatible future development around the airport to protect the missions and flight operations of the airport and Kingsley Field and to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of Klamath Falls and Klamath County.

Public Workshop #1

The first public meeting for the Kingsley Field Oregon Air National Guard Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) was held on Monday, June 29th, 2015 from 6:00PM to 7:30PM, at the Klamath Falls City Police Department Building, located at 2501 Shasta Way in Klamath Falls, OR. The purpose of this workshop was to introduce the JLUS consultant team and to provide the public with a general overview of the JLUS process and what to expect throughout the study. The workshop included a discussion of the military operations that take place on and around Kingsley Field, and how the base and the communities interact and play a role in each other’s continued development. Over the course of the project, the JLUS will look at development within the communities near Kingsley Field and it’s operational areas, and assess 25 potential compatibility factors, some man-made, and some natural, to determine which are pertinent. During the first workshop, attendees were provided with background information on the compatibility factors, and encouraged to engage in discussion and to provide input on compatibility concerns that should be addressed during the JLUS process. Public responses were registered through the use of an interactive audience response system that displayed real-time results. Following the presentation, attendees were asked to identify any locations of specific issues on large area maps.
