Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is updating its master plan.
Planners encouraged the public to get involved early with comments about the future of the airport at an open house and presentation on Tuesday night.
The master plan will include a vision for the airport, a forecast of future aviation demand and an inventory of existing conditions.
A large turnout at the open house was attributed to public interest in the West Anchorage plan.
The airport plan will be completed by December of 2013.
