19 APPENDIX C Logistics Instructions and Prompt for Breakout Sessions Facilitator InstructionsâPART A and PART B During PART A, groups will be arranged so that participants are with others who have common background perspectives (small airport, large airport, municipal planner, etc.). For PART B, participants will be grouped with other participants who have mixed background perspectives. The Airport Land Use Scenario Background is the basis for both PART A and PART B, but for PART B, the Twist for Part B is added for consideration. Facilitators should: â¢ Lead their group through analyzing and discussing the scenario and answering thequestions listed below. â¢ Guide and prompt the discussion, but not control or dominate the direction of theresponses. â¢ Focus on determining best practices and the exchange of information about need-to-know facets of airport practitionersâ versus municipal plannersâ work. â¢ Document main points of discussion, best practices, lessons learned, and âahaâmoments of exchange between municipal planners and airports, in order to be able toprovide a report back to the plenary group. Feel free to ask another participant forassistance with documenting, if need be. â¢ Keep participants on track, loosely following the timeline set below. There will be 15minutes between PART A and PART B for participants to take a break, and find theirnew, mixed grouping. Timeline for PART AâCommon Perspective (4/10/18, 2:00â3:00pm) is the following: â¢ 5 minutes for introductions â¢ 5 minutes to review the scenario â¢ 40 minutes to discuss the questions â¢ 10 minutes to agree on summary, main takeaways, lessons learned, best practiceapproaches, etc. Timeline for PART BâMixed Perspective (4/10/18, 3:15â4:15pm) is the following: â¢ 10 minutes for introductions (might take longer because of diverse backgrounds) â¢ 5 minutes to review the scenario
20 â¢ 35 minutes to discuss the questions â¢ 10 minutes to agree on summary, main takeaways, lessons learned, best practiceapproaches, etc. Airport Land Use Scenario Background âInsight Event Airport,â a small commercial service reliever airport, is located about 20 miles from a large metropolitan airport. The Airport recently completed an extension of its primary runway from 6,500 feet long by 150 feet wide, to 8,500 feet long by 150 feet wide. The runway extension required acquisition of 10 acres of farmland. The Airport land encompasses 3,200 acres in total, which is owned by the County. The Airport is operated by an Airport Authority established by the County. During the studies leading to FAAâs approval of the runway extension, the County established an Airport and County Development Planning Commission, made up of Airport staff, County planners, and other community stakeholders, that provides oversight and guidance for development of airport land and surrounding areas. The Airport and County Development Planning Commission is now also engaging and working with the Airport to support completion of its 20-year Master Plan, which anticipates construction of an additional, 10,000-foot-long, parallel runway in the next 10 years. Simultaneously, the Airport and County Development Planning Commission is overseeing the Countyâs completion of a Comprehensive Plan to guide development in the County over the next 50 years. The County was recently approached by a local commercial real estate company that wants to develop 500 acres adjacent to the Airport boundaries for commercial/non-aeronautical uses (e.g., âbig boxâ development or a shopping mall, including a tall hotel). These 500 acres are currently zoned for agricultural use. The purpose of this commercial development is to satisfy growing demand for retail in a region that is constrained, except for the land near the Airport. Initial analysis indicates that the proposed non-aeronautical uses of this land may establish obstructions in the Airportâs navigable airspace. For this scenario, you are members of the Airport and County Development Planning Commission. In your consideration of the commercial real estate companyâs request, you must recognize that the development proposal should be compatible with the Airportâs long-term plan, the regional transportation plans, land use plans, FAA airspace surfaces and land use planning compatibility guidelines, economic development initiatives, and the Countyâs Comprehensive Plan. Also, the State has its own airport zoning regulations that must be considered. The County prefers that the development of the area surrounding the Airport potentially enhance airport revenue streams and the status of the Airport and the area it serves. It is assumed the Airport and County Development Planning Commission will work with the commercial real estate company, the County, and the Airport Authority, as well as community members, business owners, and local leaders to maximize the effectiveness of the growth and development and meet all federal, state, and local regulations and laws.
21 Goal Your goal as members of the Airport and County Development Planning Commission is to consider answers to the following questions: 1. What studies should be reviewed or procured to inform your decision on the proposednon-aeronautical development?2. What navigable airspace might be affected by potential obstructions and what is theimportance to the Airport and its operation? Which surfaces must be protected underregulations, and what other surfaces might also be considered to protect the Airportâsability to grow and attract commercial airline service? How should the future runwaybe considered?3. What does this development mean to the City/County? Why it is important/what is itsbenefit? What are the costs/disbenefits to the City? (Why would a city/county seekdevelopment in close proximity to an airport?)4. What is the process that the County would have to go through to gain approval for theretail uses? What could be done to improve that process for the Airport and thecommunity? (What are obstacles to both parties both having what they need?) Twist for Part B There is a second County very close to the other runway end that the Airport Authority does not have zoning authority over. How might the Airport and County Development Planning Commission work with that second County to establish height and density controls?
