Community Outreach

Coffee Chats

Public outreach kicked off on Monday, September 22nd when Pitkin County Manager, Jon Peacock began a series of “coffee chats” at the airport. The chats will take place every Monday and Thursday mornings between 9 and 10 a.m. through October 23. Peacock will serve as acting Airport Director until a replacement for outgoing Airport Director, Jim Elwood is found. The informal chats will be held in the airport terminal café and will be an opportunity for the public to not only learn more about future plans for the airport, but to voice comments and concerns
