In 2003, Dayton will produce an international yearlong celebration of the Centennial of Powered Flight. The 2003 Committee authorized Harrison Price Company (HPC) to prepare a Feasibility and Economic Planning Study for the Festival of Flight. In follow-up to the Dayton site visit by Buzz Price and Mike Mitchell August 19 - 21, 1997 Harrison Price Company (HPC) was asked to submit a preliminary outline by September 15th concerning the developmental issues that needed to be addressed by the Committee. The following material is the response to that request. The report includes two sections: I. Study Scope and Methodology and II. Key Developmental Issues. HPC identified 14 key developmental issues that need to be addressed by the Committee during this phase of the project development: 1. Define the scope of the program; 2. Determine the physical residuals desired out of the program; 3. Define the continuing impact of the Centennial on cultural programs; 4. Ascertain achievable economic benefits; 5. Define the message the Committee wants promoted, 6. Ascertaining financial requirements; 7. Establish an appropriate management system; 8. Design an outreach campaign; 9. Develop a licensing program; 10. Understand the role of the national historical park sites; 11. Size program elements; 12. Determine a need for visitor services; 13. Scheduling; 14. Create a program identity package.
