TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 27: Enhancing Airport Land Use Compatibility, Volume 2: Land Use Survey and Case Study Summaries is part of a three-volume report that explores issues related to land use around airports. Volume 2 includes 15 case studies that targeted a wide range of airports and land use issues. The case study sites include large commercial service, military, and general aviation airports and are geographically diverse. Volume 2 also provides states and local governments with examples and a common basis for establishing zoning that protects the public interest and investment in airports.
Volume 1: Land Use Fundamentals and Implementation Resources provides guidance designed to help protect airports from incompatible land uses that impair current and future airport and aircraft operations and safety. Volume 3 includes aircraft accident data, a framework for an economic assessment of airport costs, and an annotated bibliography.
Volume 3: Additional Resources is made up of three individual components that collectively contain some of the resource documents developed to support the information explored in Volume 1. Volume 3 includes additional detail on specific topics of aircraft accident data and third party risk, and on the economic methodology for assessing the costs associated with incompatible land uses. Volume 3 also includes an annotated bibliography that contains approximately 300 entries related to airport land use compatibility.
