1 Introduction âChallenges to Implementing Successful Land Use Strategies at Airportsâ (ACRP Project 11-08/16-01) was organized by the Transportation Research Boardâs (TRBâs) Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) as part of its series of convening activities, âACRP Insight Events.â This event focused on the topic of land use planning around airports, which is typically done by local governments, with the nearby municipalities often having no connection to the airportâs management. However, because development of nearby entities may affect an airport and, conversely, an airportâs development may impact other nearby entities, both airport operators and local jurisdictions have much to gain from collaboration with each other. âChallenges to Implementing Successful Land Use Strategies at Airportsâ sought to bring together airport planners with a direct connection to airport management and community planners to discuss land use planning around airports. Preparations for this ACRP Insight Event included a thorough literature review, which served to define the state of the practice of land use planning surrounding airports and identify notable thought leaders and practitioners in the industry. Several of these thought leaders and practitioners were then selected to serve on the planning committee for the event. âChallenges to Implementing Successful Land Use Strategies at Airportsâ took place April 10â11, 2018, at the Keck Center of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (the National Academies) in Washington, D.C. More than 70 people registered for the event. Registrantsâ professional affiliations included airports, airlines, academic institutions, local and regional government, consulting, and more. The full list of registrants is provided in Appendix A. The event led off with two plenary sessions, each one including both a presentation and a discussion participated in by session panelists and audience members. The first plenary session focused on the airport planning context and the second plenary session focused on the planning jurisdiction context. The remainder of the event included three keynote speakers and breakout sessions in which participants worked together to develop a strategy to address the land use challenges of a fictional airport and jurisdiction. The program agenda for the event is provided in Appendix B. Presentations from âChallenges to Implementing Successful Land Use Strategies at Airportsâ are available on the ACRP Insight Event web page at http://www.trb.org /ACRP/ACRP-Insight-Events.aspx. The literature review prepared for the event is available at http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/acrp/docs/ACRPInsightEvent-LandUse -AnnotatedBibliography.pdf.

2 ACRP is an industry-driven, applied research program that develops near-term, practical solutions to problems faced by airport operators. ACRP is managed by TRB, a part of the National Academies, and is sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). ACRP Insight Events are forums that foster dialogue among professionals across sectors, institutions, and industries. ACRP Insight Events convene airport industry leaders and subject matter experts in various fields to encourage discussion and promote broader and deeper insight on topics of significance to airport operators. These in-depth, face-to face gatherings are designed to promote communication and collaboration, foster innovation, and help identify areas of future interest and research, especially for topics of emerging importance.
