What questions or comments do you have about the facilities requirements?
Please have secured bike parking. A locked area with great bike racks would be wonderful so more people can travel via bike to the airport.

Daniel Shallenberger more than 2 miles June 24, 2019, 9:39 PM

What questions or comments do you have about the secondary runway?
The parallel runway alignment seems much better than the existing X setup. My question is whether or not the second runway is worth the cost. I know some large airports like San Diego and Gatwick survive with just one runway --although probably over capacity-- they are surviving nonetheless. If the traffic truly merits two runways in Provo, the new parallel alignment seems only logical.


What questions or comments do you have about the airport layout plan?
The updated terminal drawing shows the loop road connecting to Flight Line Dr. and Mike Jense Pkwy at the airport, possibly requiring cars to go through 1-2 stop signs to get to/from Lakeview Parkway. An intersection on Lakeview Parkway directly across from the terminal would make access easier. However, considering Mayor Kaufusi's request to stay in budget from the video a few weeks ago, it's probably not worth it in the near-term. Instead, would it be possible to rearrange the signage and lines on the road so that Mike Jense Pkwy and Flight Line Dr became one direct and contiguous route to the terminal? This would make access simple and easy for infrequent users.

List the best parts of your airport experience, including personal memories at other airports.
Favorite Small Airports and Reasons:
1. Mesa Gateway, Long Beach, and Palm Springs--they are easy-to-use and integrate outdoor space in the waiting area. Palm Desert even has an outdoor playground in the waiting area, making it a fun memory with our kids.
2. Billings, Montana--Surprisingly nice for a small city and I was impressed arriving the first time. It does a good job integrating wood, rock, and glass.
3. Any airport with comfortable seats and space.
4. Any airport with big glass windows for my kids to watch planes.




List the worst parts of your airport experience, including personal memories at other airports.
Being stuck in a confined space for hours on end or being treated like cattle is not fun. Every airport has it's bad moments and airports that are designed to handle them by having personal space for people to sit down and friendly staff who can smile are greatly appreciated. For example, after a long international trip arriving in Phoenix many years ago, I was greeted by staff with cowboy hats on and welcoming everyone back to the United States. They asked if they could be of assistance. Each wore a sticker saying "America's friendliest airport". It also didn't feel overcrowded. Quite the contrast to JFK, LAX, or even SLC in that regard. A friendly, calming, and spacious atmosphere can go a long ways in helping these "bad" moments when they happen.


If you have to wait for a plane in the seating area, what would make your experience more tolerable?
Space, food, clean bathrooms, lots of natural lighting, and things for kids to do. Since lots of kids travel through Provo, keep them in mind.


If you have to wait in a TSA or ticketing line at the airport, what would make your experience more tolerable?
Friendly Staff


If there was one convenience store type shop at the airport, what type of food/media/gifts should they offer?
Grab-n-go food, Provo/SLC/Utah Souvenirs

Outdoors

Jetway, large windows/views


Using 1, 2, or 3 words, please tell us:

Simple, clean lines with an emphasis on the views of outside

Medium colors, modern, clean lines. (NO carpet!)


What types of artwork appeal to you? Large murals? Sculpture? Hanging art? Floor art? Framed pictures and photos? Digital media?
I honestly don't think you will need that much art if you design it with views of outside. Lots of windows! Live plants might be all of the art you need. That said, we have tons of incredibly talented Provo artists, so I hope they will be represented if we do choose to include art.


When you travel by air, what parts of the experience are most important to you?
Fast security line, on-time departure


List the best parts of your airport experience, including personal memories at other airports.
I remember eating fish in front of a very large, "hangar"-type window (at least 30-40 feet tall) with my husband. The sun was setting and it was absolutely stunning! The image is engrained in my memory. Traveling in an airplane can feel very claustrophobic so I really appreciated the open feel of the airport.


List the worst parts of your airport experience, including personal memories at other airports.
Dingy, nasty, smelly carpet where everything felt and looked gross. Covered in human grime. Sometimes people's flights are delayed and they are forced to spend more time at the airport than they would like. That becomes especially dreary when the airport itself is an unclean place.


If you have to wait for a plane in the seating area, what would make your experience more tolerable?
Easily accessible phone charging, a play area for kids, comfortable chairs with space for luggage.


If you have to wait for an arriving passenger at the airport, what would make your experience more tolerable?
Flight arrival time displays, easily marked parking/pick up areas, smart traffic flow patterns.


If you have to wait in a TSA or ticketing line at the airport, what would make your experience more tolerable?
White noise/music


If there was one convenience store type shop at the airport, what type of food/media/gifts should they offer?
Provo and/or Utah souvenirs, Packaged chips/popcorn/nuts, SOMETHING (anything) served hot. That's always the thing I miss most. Pretzels, pizza, popcorn, anything...

What questions or comments do you have about the aviation demand forecast?
If emplacements plateau, is that a bad thing?


What questions or comments do you have about the facilities requirements?
Isn’t this just growth for the sake of growth? If you build it, they will come? What if we don’t build it?


What questions or comments do you have about the secondary runway?
Why?


Do you have any other questions or comments about the Provo Municipal Airport Master Plan?
I believe that increasing commercial air traffic in Utah Valley is a bad idea. I would much rather see more emphasis out on using existing rail transportation to connect with SLC airport. Growth for the sale of growth is dumb. All of the questions that follow are assumptive closes. “Would you like that new fridge delivered on Tuesday or Wednesday?” Someone needs to have the guts to put the brakes on this truly awful campaign.

Jamie Littlefield more than 2 miles June 23, 2019, 12:42 AM

Do you have any other questions or comments about the Provo Municipal Airport Master Plan?
- Please consider designing the airport terminal in the fashion of a ski lodge. It would be unique, tie in well to Provo's "welcome home" slogan, work alongside our dramatic mountain views, and be somewhat simple to implement (ski lodge decor, fireplaces, etc.)
- Please make sure there is covered, secure bicycle parking at the airport

Name not shown more than 2 miles June 21, 2019, 4:55 AM

What questions or comments do you have about the terminal alternatives?
PVU could be uncommonly bike friendly. I can seriously foresee customers and crew arriving by bicycle. I will — already own and use the equipment/luggage to so travel—use long term bike lockers if provided. In addition to covered parking, providing a few lockers could make this airport development uncommon.

Mary Wade more than 2 miles June 20, 2019, 3:20 PM

What questions or comments do you have about the facilities requirements?
I would love to see Provo set the bar high with bicycle facilities. The airport's proximity to the Provo River Trail makes this even more sensible, especially for people who will be using this for brief business trips or students visiting family with small amounts of luggage. Covered and within eye-site of main foot traffic would be ideal, and a bike storage room would be even more so. The San Francisco airport offers some excellent options, including a bike valet and high-trafficked areas for bike racks to help ensure that people who arrive by bicycle have the peace of mind in knowing their bike will be waiting for them when they get back. https://www.flysfo.com/to-from/biking. Thanks so much!

Thanks so much for all your hard work on this! What an exciting development for Provo!
