E-1 A P P E N D I X E Airport Land Use Compatibility Brochure The purpose of the ACRP Project 04-22 brochure is to help describe the importance of an Airport Zoning Ordinance (AZO) and to gain support for local governments to adopt one . The brochure focuses on key aspects of effective airport land use compatibility planning, including: Highlighting the importance of GA airport to our national, state, and regional transportation system. Providing an overview of key compatibility concerns and consequences of incompatible land use. Identifying the primary stakeholders responsible for airport land use compatibility planning. Confirming that an AZO is the most direct and effective means of regulating land uses around the airport. Emphasizing the importance of communication, education, and outreach. Identifying strategies for enhancing airport land use compatibility. The brochure is developed to benefit several stakeholders involved in land use planning. Owners and operators of GA airports can use the brochure to initiate discussions with local decision makers and land use planners. State aviation departments may find the brochure a useful educational tool that can be posted on their respective websites. The brochure is also intended to be helpful to local land use agencies who may not be familiar with aviation compatibility issues as well as other stakeholders such as nearby land owners, businesses, economic development agencies, and developers. For a full-size (11”x17”) copy of the brochure, go to the TRB web site (TRB.org) and search for “ACRP Research Report 206.”

Incompatible land uses can threaten the safe utility of airports and expose people living and working nearby to potentially unacceptable levels of noise or safety risk.

At the state level, all 50 states have enacted some form of airport zoning legislation since the 1950s. The majority of states (90 percent) have enacted laws mandating or enabling local governments to adopt, administer, and enforce airport zoning regulations.

The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's ACRP Research Report 206: Guidebook on Effective Land Use Compatibility Planning Strategies for General Aviation Airports identifies that local adoption and implementation of airport land use compatibility regulations varies widely among local government agencies. While there is no one strategy that is effective for all airports, all airports need to be proactive about land use compatibility.

This guidebook will help airport operators understand the various tools for ensuring compatible land use and how best to communicate land use compatibility needs to government decision makers and land use professionals (among other stakeholders). It includes Self Assessment Checklists, an accompanying Power Point Presentation, and a quick-reference Planning Brochure.
