EWR Vision Plan

The EWR Vision Plan is creating a comprehensive development strategy to improve travel experience, accommodate future growth and identify opportunities for enhancing the sustainability and resiliency of Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

The airport-wide plan will provide a framework for future development through 2065 and make recommendations for both short and long term projects. The Vision Plan will emphasize:

  • Creating a memorable, locally driven, World Class Gateway for New Jersey
  • Enabling long term economic growth and a high quality of life for local residents and the region
  • Embedding sustainability in every element of the development plan
  • Enabling multimodal access to the airport for both work and travel.
  • Developing a feasible, phasable plan to minimize impact on airport operations

The development of the Vision Plan includes extensive local community outreach and participation.

The second Community Engagement meetings for the project were held on May 15, 17, and 18, 2023. See below for content:
