Airport Layout Plan (ALP)

ALP stands for “Airport Layout Plan.” It is a drawing used to depict current and future airport facilities. Under federal law, an airport must keep its ALP up-to-date. For proposed projects like the Replacement Terminal, the FAA must approve a revised ALP prior to approving the project. The FAA has approved the airport’s revised ALP, which includes the Replacement Passenger Terminal.

Burbank Airport Final Charrette Report

Designing a replacement to an 89-year-old airport terminal is no easy task. That’s why we turned to our community for help. Over the past eight months, Hollywood Burbank Airport held five design charrette workshops in the City of Burbank, as well as workshops in Glendale, Los Angeles and Pasadena. Hundreds have presented their vision for Elevate BUR that will serve our community for generations to come.

The workshops focused primarily on safety improvements, design features and amenities that the community and passengers would like to see in Elevate BUR.

The Charrettes were conducted between March 27 and October 26, 2019. We thank all participants for their contributions.

Burbank Airport Soil and Soil Vapor Investigation Report

Soil and soil vapor testing was conducted at 144 locations located across the preferred site for the new terminal. The primary objective of the investigation was to evaluate the potential presence of chemical constituents in soil and soil vapor, with the data collected to be used by the Authority to prepare a site-specific human health risk assessment (HHRA). The Soil and Soil Vapor Investigation Report, including its technical appendices, is posted below.

Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR)

The Airport’s Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) forecasts that the impacts of each Replacement Terminal development option would be similar to impacts of the current terminal; that anticipated increases in passengers and flights would occur regardless of whether a Replacement Terminal is built; and that the activity levels the Airport experienced between 2006 and 2008 are not projected to occur again during the period studied. The document, including its technical appendices, are posted below.

Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS)

As part of the federal environmental review process, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has released a Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS) and Record of Decision (ROD) for the proposed construction and operation of the 14-gate replacement passenger terminal building and ancillary improvements. The FEIS and ROD, and its technical appendices, are posted below.

Human Health Risk Assessment (HHRA)

The Human Health Risk Assessment (HHRA) was prepared by Geosyntec Consultants, Inc. (Geosyntec) and examined the Adjacent Property, the 49-acre site that is the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority’s preferred location for a 355,000-square-foot, 14-gate terminal, parking and utility support structures. The HHRA utilizes certain regulatory benchmarks to evaluate the potential for the occurrence of adverse human health effects from possible exposures to chemical compounds detected on the Adjacent Property. Based on the results of the HHRA, Geosyntec determined that the Adjacent Property is compatible for the construction and operation of a Elevate BUR and associated facilities.
