Columbia City Hall

A public hearing on the new $20 million terminal building at Columbia Regional Airport and a vote on the Magnolia Falls Park project will top the Columbia City Council’s agenda at its regular meeting Monday night.

The council will hold a public discussion and decide whether or not to move forward with the proposed method of construction for the terminal. In July, the council made an agreement with Burns & McDonnell to start the engineering and architectural work for the terminal. The new terminal building will be around 60,000 square feet. City staff estimated that construction would begin in the summer and end in 2022, according to a council memo.

The council will also vote on plans to improve Magnolia Falls Park. The city collected feedback through two online surveys that were available from mid-July to September. The majority of public comment on the proposed changes want to preserve the park’s nature.
