The existing building was well worn, near the end of its useful life, and in need of a major reconfiguration to adequately configure the TSA screening area and holdroom. The new building is 1’ higher than the old terminal to correct the drainage issues on the site. The new building is 8,818 square feet, and includes ticketing counters, airline offices, TSA offices, baggage screening area, TSA checkpoint, holdroom, restrooms, baggage claim, and rental car counters. This project is a pay-as-you-go project and is the sponsor’s share (5%) of the project cost of AIP 3-08-0002-19.

This project is the design of the rehabilitation of the primary Runway 2/20, 100’ wide x 8519’ long. The pavement condition index (PCI) study performed by CDOT Aeronautics identified Runway 2/20 as weathered with longitudinal and transverse cracking and in need of rehabilitation. An asphalt overlay will replace the aging pavement and address the issues before a complete reconstruction is required. This project will include the survey, geotechnical engineering, and civil engineering to design for the asphalt pavement rehabilitation. This project is a pay-as-you-go project and is the sponsor’s share (5%) of the project cost of an Airport Improvement Project.

This project is a pay-as-you-go project and is the sponsor’s share (5%) of the project cost of an Airport Improvement Project.
Anticipated project start date: June, 2017
Anticipated completion: October, 2017
Actual total project cost: $6,833,333.34
PFC Application Amount: $341,667.00
The airport is currently charging $3.00 per enplaned passenger, this application will increase the collection to the maximum allowable PFC amount of $4.50 per enplaned passenger for the projects listed above. The proposed charge effective date is June 1, 2016. The estimated expiration date is June 1, 2034. The estimated PFC revenue for application no. 2 is $425,304.
The San Luis Valley Regional Airport is requesting to exempt all air taxi/commercial operators filing FAA Form 1800-31 from collection of the PFC. The known carrier in this class is Mountain View Aeromotive. The annual estimated number of passengers enplaned by this class is less than 100. The Alamosa Board of County Commissioners desires to exempt this class of carriers, because the administrative costs for the carrier and the airport are considered excessive for the small amount of revenue received.
Effective June 1, 2015 Alamosa County no longer requires Business Licenses per House Bill 15-1028.
