Airport’s Master Plan May Realign Rangeline

Columbia residents living on Rangeline Road near the Columbia Regional Airport may be attending a meeting about the airport’s master plan and its effects on their street in the future.

The master plan wants to extend the runway to allow for bigger planes, which would call for a realignment of Rangeline Road near the airport. The realignment won’t take out any houses and Boone County Commissioner Karen Miller said she didn’t know how much land would be affected.

Miller discussed the idea of a public meeting about the realignment at the city and county government meeting on June 24. She said the area is in her district and she wants residents in the area to be given notice about what’s going on so it won’t be a big surprise to them. No date for the public meeting has been set.

Jill Stedem, public information specialist with Columbia’s Public Works Department, said the realignment of Rangeline Road has not been approved yet. She said the city has been in contact with some of the neighbors in the area but a public meeting specifically about the realignment would be held if the realignment were passed.
