AIRPORT COMPATIBLE LAND USE STUDY1 Airport Compatible Land Use Marlene L. Gafrick, Director City of Houston Planning & Development Department Eric Potts, Deputy Director of Planning, Design & Construction City of Houston, Houston Airport System
AIRPORT COMPATIBLE LAND USE STUDY2 FAA LETTER Federal airport development grant agreements require City to adopt measures to ensure land development compatible with airport operations. Protect FAAs investment of $667 million since Federal assistance for future airport development and buy-outs may be limited without controls.
AIRPORT COMPATIBLE LAND USE STUDY3 HOUSTON AIRPORT SYSTEMS IMPACT The three combined assets of Bush Intercontinental, Hobby and Ellington contribute more than $24 billion to Houstons economy annually. More than 387,000 metric tons of air cargo and 52 million passengers were served by the Houston Airport System in th-largest multi-airport system in the U.S. and the 6th-largest in the world. $3.6 billion invested through CIP since 1986 and $2.3 billion in projects planned through CIP.
AIRPORT COMPATIBLE LAND USE STUDY4 LEGISLATIVE REVIEW Amended Chapter 211 and 241 of the Local Government Code in Clarified no zoning referendum needed to adopt airport land use regulations. Reviewed measures adopted by other airports. Same statute (in place more than 50 years) that allows the City to enact height hazard restrictions allows us to adopt compatible land use restrictions.
AIRPORT COMPATIBLE LAND USE STUDY5 IAH BUSH GROWTH
AIRPORT COMPATIBLE LAND USE STUDY6 LAND USE CONCERNS IN AIRPORT PROXIMITY At IAH Bush, new residential development encroaches on key runway noise zones. Recent Cases: Greens Glen. This proposed subdivision will be located on centerline of a future runway, partly within the runway protection zone and mostly within the runways future DNL (noise) 65 contour and Tier 1. Northport Park – This proposed subdivision will be partially located in Tier 2.
AIRPORT COMPATIBLE LAND USE STUDY7 CREATION OF 3 TIERS Tier 1 – Primarily based on future noise contours, including 65 DNL extended to property line boundaries Tier 2 – Followed natural boundaries (i.e. streets, bayous, etc.) Tier 3 – Predefined by state law (3 x 5 mile box)
