If we close the airport, where would the airplanes go?

In the Repurpose Our Runways ballot initiative, the city will be required to work with current airport users and tenants on a transition to airport closure.

Some airport tenants may seek to move to another local airport. There are 10 other public airports within about 50 miles of Boulder, including 3 airports within 15 miles, which offer the same types of services and facilities as BDU. There is also a dedicated glider airport not far from Boulder, where the Colorado Soaring Association is based.

However, some may choose to sell their planes or businesses or move out of area rather than relocate locally. It's really up to those individuals.
