This AC is intended to help airports comply with their grant assurances concerning all the compatible land use issues, including obstructions and hazard to airport navigation, airport noise, wildlife and bird hazard attractants, and protection of persons and property on the ground. It will also help a broad audience, including local land use planning authorities, better understand the effects of non-compatible land use on the safety and utility of airport operations and identify compatible land use development tools and techniques to protect surrounding communities from adverse effects associated with airport operations.
Once published, this AC will replace AC 150/5190-4A, Model Zoning Ordinance to Limit Height of Objects Around Airports, dated December 14, 1987, and the Interim Guidance on Land Uses Within a Runway Protection Zone (RPZ), dated September 2012.
