The Johnson County Airport Master Plan was a comprehensive 20-year planning study that examined all facets of this rural and historic community airport in Northern Wyoming. The project examined the airport’s role within the local, regional, and national aviation system. In recent years, the region had seen an economic downturn with the reduction of coal bed methane extraction and other similar factors. This negatively affected airports throughout the area, including Johnson County. Previous planning studies had bolstered the idea of broad expansion at the airport, but a more current review of master planning elements produced more timely and accurate future trends, forecasts, and economic factors. This led to a more conservative approach for future development at the airport; one that still enabled growth when the conditions were ready, but also saved the community millions of dollars in unnecessary and costly development.
