10 Breakout Sessions In addition to the plenary sessions and keynote addresses, the ACRP Insight Event included breakout sessions in which participants worked in groups to analyze and develop hypothetical solutions to land use planning issues that an airport operator and municipal planning jurisdiction might face. The solutions proposed by participants may not be applicable to all communities, but they were solutions that participants thought could possibly work in the hypothetical situations they were given. The breakout sessions included two rounds, with participants grouped with peers from similar backgrounds in the first round and with people from a varying set of backgrounds for the second round. The scenario prompt given to participants described a fictional airport and jurisdiction facing land use challenges and is included as Appendix C. Takeaways and observations from individual participants included that when tackling land use challenges, it is vital to bring all parties together. This helps to identify the needs and the implications of all decisions. In the breakout session prompt, there were conflicts within land ownership. As is typical for most challenging land use issues, there was a lack of understanding of the information that was available, such that taking active measures to collect or solicit other information or preparing to solve some problems with limited information was needed. Especially in land use planning, everything is not “black and white,” and one often has to make things fit given less-than-ideal constraints. Other observations included that any studies need to include identification of the benefits to the community. Opportunities from land use planning are in the current timeframe, but the risk is long-term, so it is important to understand the benefits. Inclusive involvement of all parties is especially vital because of the long-term risk. Expanding or broadening stakeholder involvement would be beneficial, particularly in a time of growth. It is best if the airport operator, developer, and community are using the same timeframes and project timeline. Airport operators should be thinking in 50-year timeframes, like communities. In carrying out planning, developers need to be responsive to FAA concerns.

TRB’s Conference Proceedings on the Web 24: Challenges to Implementing Successful Land Use Strategies at Airports is a compilation of the presentations and a summary of the ensuing discussions at an ACRP Insight Event held April 10-11, 2018, in Washington, D.C.

The event brought together airport representatives and community planners to discuss effective strategies for improving their ability to partner on land use issues in the vicinity of airports.

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.
