AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           October 10, 2011

 

From:                          Charlie Weller, Airport Manager

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing execution of Task Order No. 3 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc. for an Airfield Signage Plan at Leesburg International Airport

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of Task Order No. 3 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc. for the Airfield Signage Plan at Leesburg International Airport

 

Analysis:

The capital improvement plan for Leesburg International Airport includes a project to update airside signage.  The current airside directional signage is 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. 

 

Task Order No. 3 provides engineering, design and bidding services for an Airfield Signage Plan. The project will involve developing a Plan, detailing the type of signs and appropriate verbiage and illumination.  All signage will comply with Federal Regulations.  It is anticipated that the new signage will be installed during FY 2012/2013 with funding provided through a Joint Participation Agreement from Florida Department of Transportation.  The cost for Task Order 3 is $127,630 and will be paid with grant funding from the FAA (95%) and FDOT (2.5%) and a match from the City of Leesburg (2.5%).

 

Options:

1.  Approve Task Order No. 3 with Hanson Professional Services, Inc.; 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 for this Task Order is as follows:
