138 Aircraft Noise: A Toolkit for Managing Community Expectations within the same area will make the ultimate development of incompatible uses in the air much more likely and will lead to future conflicts with the airport. Limitations: Requires the willingness of the local planning authority to develop comprehen- sive plans that place a high priority on compatibility and on elected authority to adopt them as policy decisions. Implemented by: Local jurisdictions based on airport recommendations. Public reaction: Public acceptance of the recommendations of the comprehensive planning process is typically dependent upon the community's general acceptance of land use planning, policies, and zoning, as well as political interests and influences of those effected. Compatible Land Use Zoning Purpose: The formal adoption of development regulations that discourage or prohibit the placement of incompatible uses, as outlined in 14 CFR Part 150, Appendix A, Table 1, in areas within contours of significant noise exposure adjacent to an airport. Comparable state or local criteria may be similarly applied. Limitations: Requires the local zoning authority to implement. Implemented by: Local jurisdictions based on airport recommendations. Public reaction: Public acceptance of compatible land use zoning is typically dependent upon the community's acceptance of comprehensive land use planning, policies, and zoning (in gen- eral) and political interests and influences. Noise Impact Overlay Zoning Purpose: The purpose of a Noise Impact Overlay Zone is to alert existing and future property owners of the possible noise impacts from a nearby airport. These zones also prevent or discour- age noncompatible development of property within the zone from occurring without the proper notice and documentation. Most overlay zones also address issues of structural height and seek to eliminate obstructions to aviation, require noise level disclosure on all properties, and may require avigation easements for new development approvals within their boundaries. Limitations: Requires the local jurisdiction to adopt and implement as part of its Comprehen- sive Plan or zoning ordinance. Often is subject to variance requests from developers. Implemented by: Local jurisdictions. Public reaction: General public acceptance of noise impact overlay zoning is typically depen- dent upon the community's acceptance of comprehensive land use planning, policies, and zoning (in general) and political interests and influences Example of Technique for Public Information: Airport Environs Overlay (192) 9-16 Airport Land Use Management District (ALUMD) (193) 9-17 Environmental Impact Districts Section 4-1400 AI-Airport Impact Overlay District (194) 9-18 Aircraft Noise Overlay District (195) 9-19 Noise Overlay District (Plainfield, IN) (196) 9-20
