Planners and Planes: Airports and Land-Use Compatibility

Links between community planning and airport planning are necessary and often overlooked. If an airport is to be fully useful and effective, it must be carefully and regularly considered in the community planning process; conversely, airport planning must understand and consider the needs and concerns of the communities that surround, abut, and make use of the airport. The premise of this PAS Report is that airport planners and community planners must work together as partners during the development of planning processes in order to weave a community's vision, strategies, and values together with those embedded in airport planning.
