Having recently completed a Part 150 Noise Study, Port Columbus International Airport was still not perceived by its neighbors as a positive, contributing, local enterprise. Rather, great resistance to any suggestions of development has been felt by airport sponsors. In light of this, the on-going Reliever Study included an economic impact analysis specifically for Port Columbus International and its relievers: Ohio State University Airport, Rickenbacker Field, South Columbus, Bolton Field. R.A. Wiedemann & Associates was selected to perform the economic impact analysis for each of these airports. It is anticipated that the results of this study will aid in the public perception of airports in the Columbus metropolitan area and their improvement.
