AOPA told Sacramento County that the proposed rezoning and development of the Murieta Gardens I and II Project is an incompatible use of land adjacent to the public-use Rancho Murieta Airport. This project would allow for the construction of 208 residences less than 1,000 feet from the end of the runway. "It is the association's experience that allowing noncompatible land uses such as residential development adjacent to vibrant airports is one of the fundamental reasons and a root cause for the ultimate demise of the airport," said AOPA Vice President of Airports Bill Dunn in a letter to Joyce Horizumi, Sacramento County's environmental coordinator, expressing AOPA's strong opposition to this project.
