C-1 A P P E N D I X C Self-Assessment Checklists The Self-Assessment Checklists included in this appendix are designed to provide airport managers and land use planners with a framework to evaluate local airport land use compatibility conditions and develop or revise compatibility regulations. The individual questions posed are based on the strategies outlined in Chapter 3 of the Guidebook. Checklist No. 1 is intended specifically for the airport manager. The questions provide a systematic process to help the airport manager recognize the airport’s role in the community and identify key stakeholders that may support or detract from airport land use compatibility initiatives. The checklist worksheet also highlights the interrelationship between airport plans and local community plans and the need for land use plans to be consistent with current airport plans. This checklist will also help the airport manager explore areas where communication, education and outreach may be needed before attempting to improve the status quo. Checklist No. 2 is intended for the local planner but may also be used by the airport manager either independently or in conjunction with the local planner in charge of developing airport land use compatibility regulations. The checklist focuses on three key areas: 1) drafting airport land use compatibility regulations; 2) getting regulations adopted; and 3) implementing the regulations. The first set of questions seeks to determine the effectiveness of existing airport compatibility regulations and the need for local jurisdictions to establish or enhance regulations. The second section focuses on identifying challenges to adoption and working with stakeholders toward common goals. The implementation checklist worksheet guides the user through the process of evaluating land use development proposals within the airport environs to determine whether a proposed project would be compatible with airport operations. Both Self-Assessment Checklists are intended to provide users with a better understanding of the airport’s context within the community, effectiveness of current planning practices, and steps toward effective land use planning. For editable versions of the Self-Assessment Checklists, go to the TRB 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.
