AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           October 10, 2011

 

From:                          Charlie Weller

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing a Joint Participation Agreement from the Florida Department of Transportation for the Design for the Installation of Airfield Signage at Leesburg International Airport

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends acceptance of a Joint Participation Agreement from the Florida Department of Transportation for the Design for the Installation of Airfield Signage.

 

Analysis:

The City Commission approved an FAA grant for $121,600 (95%) on September 12, 2011 for this project.  This is the FDOT funding portion ($3,200; 2.5%).  The remaining 2.5% comes from the City and is already budgeted.

 

Leesburg International Airport currently has a mixture of airside directory signage that is outdated and inadequate.  It includes a mixture of signs – non-illuminated, non-reflective, reflective and illuminated – to direct pilots to any given point on the airside.  This situation can cause pilot confusion, especially during nighttime hours. 

 

This project will involve developing an Airside Master Signage Plan.  All signage will comply with Federal regulations.  This study will determine the following:

 

  1. Verbiage (letters, numbers, etc.)
  2. Quantity of signs.
  3. Sign location.
  4. Illumination level.
  5. Size

 

Options:

1.      Approve the JPA from FDOT for the Design for the Installation of Airfield Signage; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Funding for this project was included in the Fiscal year 10-11 airport budget and will be rolled into the current fiscal year.  The cost breakdown is as follows:
