Super Bowl Notes & Updates
August 17, 2017

Airports Community Super Bowl Mission Statement:
Boldly welcoming Super Bowl LII to Minnesota, where our people are surprisingly warm, the airport communities world-class, and the experience unforgettable.

1. Introductions
2. Phil Burked talked about the Transportation Research Board – Airport Cooperative Research Program – Synthesis 57 Airport Response to Special Events book. If you’re interested in having a copy, contact
3. Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) Update – Kristi
Rollwagen (Emergency Response) & Sue Donovan (MAC IT). HSIN is a secured national database for sensitive but unclassified information. HISN is not only a repository but a place for people to pull information back out from Federal, State, Local, Tribal, Territorial, International, private sector, Homeland Security partners. The website is about information sharing and making sure that there is a common operating picture for an event. HSIN is a web-based, secured site with over 60,000 registered users. You can host web conferences, manage workflow, messaging, etc. When it comes time for planning to become operational, you will get real-time monitoring as to what’s going on. MAC will be using this database for the Super Bowl and other events like CrashEx 2018. If you would like more information or access to HSIN, contact
4. MSP Committees Reports:
Accessibility – nothing to report but you can contact Ken Rodgers if you have questions, etc. at
Airfield – Since our July meeting, the Snow Removal Working Group met on July 25 to discuss equipment assignments, procedures and responsibilities for snow removal in aircraft parking areas.
On July 31, we met with the MAC Electricians to review the proposed plan for the removal of lights and signs on Runway 4/22 and Taxiways M and L. The Electricians estimate that it will take 160 staff hours of 4 electricians working 40 hours each to remove the lights and signs on the proposed movement area surfaces. It will take the same amount of time to replace them.
MAC and FAA ATCT met to discuss a contingency plan in the event that Runway 4/22 was needed for aircraft operations. Based on the amount of time needed to replace lights and signs on Runway 4/22, it was agreed that this contingency plan would not be activated unless there was a multi-day need for the runway. The contingency plan is to close Runway
17/35 and relocate aircraft that are parked on Runway 4/22 to 17/35. Signature estimates that it will take 20-25 minutes to relocate an aircraft from 4/22 to 17/35 and then return to 4/22 for another aircraft. After the aircraft are relocated and the lights and signs are replaced on 4/22, the runway would be opened for operations.
MAC and Signature are planning to tour the aircraft parking areas on August 18.

Terminal Operations
 Terminal 1 - Facilities has completed a review of Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 ventilation systems. The review focused on two areas. The first related to the mechanics of existing venting, cooling and heating mechanics and the need for additional staffing, materials and contractors if the system should fail. The second area of focus involved the evaluation of the introduction of an air borne threat into an air take system. A plan is being finalized and will be distributed to Kristi Rollwagen, and MAC Fire and Police. The plan will indicate areas of concern and how EMC will provide mitigation if an incident should occur.
MAC staff is requesting of the Commission in September, the purchase of approximately 9,000 square yards of carpet to replace worn carpet in Terminals 1 and 2. The replacement will take place shortly before the Super Bowl.

Terminal Space Requests
The Terminal Space Request group is meeting every other Tuesday. To date, we have received requests and addressed space needs for retail pop-up shops, advertising, NFL branding, Foundation, Traveler’s Assistance and Arts & Culture. Our next meeting is scheduled for August 29 with the NFL Branding follow up on the agenda.
As a reminder, please submit terminal space requests with the link below. The Terminal Space Request group will review all requests for space in the terminals and work to determine the highest and best use of the space should there be multiple requests for the same area. We can also assist should your committee have a need for space, but are not certain where in the terminals would be an optimal location.
To assist you in getting your request in for review, we have developed a space request form. We ask that you fill out the request form with as much detail as possible in order to give us a good understanding of the request.
