Secure your airport's future by making sure its new zoning maps are correct. Catching many airport users by surprise, local airport 20-year land-use plans and zoning maps are being hastily updated by the San Diego County Airport Land Use Commission to meet new California real estate laws. This could potentially open the door for incompatible land uses next to airports. San Diego's airports have been especially vulnerable to developers. But the land-use plans can also be your friend by preventing residential encroachment. You are encouraged to review your airport's land-use plans and zoning maps, which are expected to be available for a brief public comment period at any time. Please e-mail the San Diego Area Aviation Council, a group of San Diego's airport associations, and contact your AOPA Airport Support Network volunteers. Your efforts could save your airport.
