Kittitas (pronounced 'kit-i-tass') County is located in central Washington
State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
In October 2000, a Strategic Planning Committee was formed comprised of
representatives from the Federal Aviation Administration, Central Washington
University, Aviation professionals, Chamber of Commerce, and surrounding
property owners. The task for this Committee was to establish the needs of
Bowers Field for the next 20 years. In order for Bowers Field to be eligible for
Federal Funding the Master Plan must be updated every 10 years.
Almost four years later on July 6, 2004, the Board of County Commissioners
Signed the final Master Plan and Airport Layout Plan followed by the Federal
Aviation Administration signing on July 28, 2004.
