The Grand Junction Regional Airport Authority (Authority) and Aviation Management Consulting Group (AMCG) are in the process of developing certain Primary Management Compliance Documents (PMCDs) for the Grand Junction Regional Airport (Airport).
PMCDs are a compendium of rules, regulations, policies, and standards that govern the operation, management, and development of an airport. In combination, PMCDs are designed to: (1) contribute to the long-term financial health of an airport, (2) facilitate (foster) the orderly development of an airport, (3) encourage the provision of quality products, services, and facilities at an airport, (4) protect the health, safety, interest, and general welfare of the public, and (5) reduce the potential for conflict with tenants, consumers, and users. PMCDs are typically comprised of PMCD General Provisions, Rules and Regulations, Minimum Standards, Leasing Policy, and Development Standards. This project is focused on the development of PMCD General Provisions and Minimum Standards as defined below:
PMCD General Provisions sets forth those provisions, definitions, and acronyms that are common to all PMCDs without having to duplicate within each PMCD.
Minimum Standards sets forth the minimum requirements that need to be met as a condition for conducting commercial general aviation aeronautical activities at the Airport. The purpose of minimum standards is to provide a fair and reasonable opportunity, without unjust discrimination, to applicants to qualify, or otherwise compete, to occupy available Airport land and/or improvements and engage in authorized commercial general aviation aeronautical activities at the Airport.
By providing consistent threshold requirements for engaging in such activities, the Authority and Airport management and staff will be able to utilize these PMCDs to level the playing field and promote fair competition among commercial aeronautical operators. Consistent with the objectives established by the FAA, minimum standards should (1) promote safety, (2) protect Airport users, (3) maintain and enhance the availability of services, (4) promote the orderly development of the Airport, and (5) ensure operational efficiency.
During this process, the Authority invites tenants and stakeholders to review and provide comments (additions, deletions, and/or modifications) pertaining to the draft PMCD documents. An electronic copy of the draft PMCD documents can be downloaded by using the weblinks at the bottom of this page. In the alternative, a printed copy of the PMCD documents are available (upon request) at the Airport administrative office.
Tenants and stakeholders may submit comments to for review by clicking the NEXT button at the bottom of this page. The draft PMCD General Provisions and Minimum Standards are available for public review and comment beginning Friday, July 20, 2018, with a comment submission deadline of Friday, August 17, 2018.
A tenant and stakeholder public meeting will be held Thursday, August 9th at 5:00pm in Room 221 in the University Center on the campus of Colorado Mesa University, which will afford tenants and stakeholders the opportunity to discuss any questions or comments with the Authority and AMCG pertaining to the draft PMCD General Provisions and Minimum Standards.
After the tenant and stakeholder review process is complete, the Authority and AMCG will review and respond to all comments received. Revisions will be incorporated into the final version of the PMCD documents as applicable.
