CLT Seeks Feedback as Part of Environmental Assessment

Charlotte Douglas International Airport is hosting meetings next week to share information and gather feedback as part of an Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluating the potential impacts of a proposal to build a new runway, expand two concourses and add a parking deck.

The meetings are:

  • Monday, Oct. 21 at Embassy Suites, 4800 S. Tryon St., Charlotte
  • Thursday, Oct. 24 at Harris Conference Center at CPCC, 3216 Harris Campus Dr., Charlotte

Both meetings are open-house style from 6 – 8 p.m. No formal presentation is planned, and the same information will be provided at both meetings.

The EA will evaluate 18 potential direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental impacts that may result from the proposal. They include noise and noise-compatible land use, air quality, water resources, historic resources, and socioeconomics and environmental justice.

The community is encouraged to learn about the proposal and provide feedback. During the EA process, community members will have several opportunities to provide input and comments.
