As the Santa Monica Airport celebrates its 100th year of existence in the community, City Council approved a public process to determine the future of the Santa Monica Airport on January 24, 2023. The Airport, which lies on 227 acres, represents nearly 5% of the the city's land area. It was purchased in 1926 using a Parks bond, and was later developed into the SMO Municipal Airport.
- The public process is consistent with past Council direction to establish a plan for future use of the land, and to address the community's interest in the creation of parks and recreational amenities, and to contend with community goals and priorities as they relate to current and future generations.
The City invited Consultants and Teams to complete and submit electronic qualifications on the City's online vendor portal for the Airport Conversion Project Request for Qualification prior to the submission deadline on March 13, 2023. The Request for Qualifications documents and addenda are linked below.
