BURBANK : Airport Authority OKs First Phase of Expansion

The Burbank Airport Authority voted this week to move forward with the first phase of a plan for a larger terminal that would nearly triple the size of the existing 163,000-square-foot building and add five aircraft gates.

The plan, approved 6 to 0 Tuesday, also would double the number of parking spaces at the airport by 1998.

However, the airport's commissioners say they will give Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena residents at least six months notice before proceeding with the last stage of the controversial, multimillion-dollar project.

Airport officials hope to ultimately quadruple the size of the terminal.
