|2.||APPROVAL OF MINUTES:||January 1, 2005, minutes approved as written|
|A.||ALP Master Plan Update|
Staff asked commissioners to look at draft airport plan layout map showing the modifications suggested to Century West by the Airport Commission. This layout plan will be sent with correction and suggestions back to Century West for modification. Staff will be in further contact with Century West to set up dates. There will need to be another public meeting and council meeting to adopt the master plan. The capital improvements plan for the airport will be the next piece forwarded by Century West.
Skinner informed Lamb that the gate on Airport Road off of Dead Indian Memorial is still broken. Lamb will follow up with the project manager to get this resolved as it is a safety issue. The commissioners who had seen the tarmac where the tie-downs were reinstalled were upset with the sloppy concrete job that was done. Skinner asked Olson to see if grinding off the excess concrete would be possible. Lamb will ask Olson if there are any other treatments to clean up the concrete.
|A.||Strategic Planning - Visioning Process Draft Approval|
Commission reviewed the draft visioning statement sent out by Ann Seltzer. Minor changes were made and the Airport Commission accepted the following as their new Ashland Airport Commission Vision Statement:
The Ashland Airport is fiscally sound and self-sufficient. It is a significant community asset and is considered a model of a successful small airport. The airport offers diverse opportunities for aviation-related jobs, businesses, recreation and education. It houses state-of-the-art technology and equipment, which ensures a safe environment for pilots and guests.
The aesthetically pleasing Ashland Airport welcomes residents by offering numerous amenities beyond basic aviation needs. It is recognized as an essential transportation component of southern Oregon and is easily accessible to and from Ashland via a variety of transportation modes.
Motion to accept the vision statement made by Richard Hendrickson and seconded by Bill Skillman.

|6.||AIRPORT MANAGER REPORT/FBO REPORT/AIRPORT ASSOCIATION:|
|A.||Status of Airport, Financial Report, Review of Safety Reports|
The activity has been quiet at the airport during the last month. The actuator button for the disabled button on the door is broken. Lamb will send a message to Dale Peters to have it fixed. Lamb and Skinner have both been in touch with the Fire Department and Margueritte Hickman will be available to help with hangar inspections. Lamb would like to send a letter to the renters informing them of possible upcoming inspections along with reminders of allowed uses.
Staff and Skinner need to work on the Steve Green issue. The utilities will need to be worked out. Skinner may put Green under his company to keep the insurance costs manageable for Green. Lamb has been working on the fees that would need to be collected and forward them on to Skinner. Then it will be up to Skinner to decide if the costs pencil out. The commission would hate to lose Green's business at the airport. He has a wonderful reputation as a painter.
Staff will call and ask why Ashland Airport was not named under the ODA Annual Report naming airports who received grants and other program benefits.
|7.||NEXT MEETING DATE: MARCH 1, 2005, 9:30 AM|
