Final KCI public input meeting to be held Thursday night

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Thursday night is the last chance for residents to share their thoughts on the future of Kansas City International Airport.

The Airport Terminal Advisory Group is gathering more opinions on the possible changes to the terminal layout.
The proposed plan has created a lot of controversy, and people have expressed their concerns at a series of public hearings.
For years, plans of changing the airport to a one-terminal system have been met with resistance by many residents who feel it isn’t necessary.
They argue the money could be better used on fighting crime or improving roads.
However, airport officials say the current system is forcing KCI to lose flights because of inefficiencies with baggage and security.
Designers of the one-terminal system said the convenient curb-side pick-up and drop-off would still be there, and the changes would actually make it easier to get through security.

The final meeting will be from 6-7:30 p.m., at the Johnson County Community College’s Polsky Theater.

The advisory group is set to share its findings with the city in April.
