The State of Illinois continues to work on plans for the potential establishment of a proposed South Suburban Airport (SSA) that will be located near Peotone, IL. Based on FAA site approval granted in 2002, the State has been acquiring land to preserve the option of developing an inaugural airport (over 2,000 acres to date). The State is focused on initial establishment of an inaugural airport with the capability to expand to accommodate future market demand.
Currently, the State is working on its Master Plan and has submitted a number of the components of the Plan, including the South Suburban Airport Forecasts 2009: Verification of 2004 Forecasts, which the FAA approved on March 23, 2011.
Once FAA receives all of the components the draft Airport Layout Plan and Master Plan from the State, it can determine a schedule for the completion of its environmental analysis.
