Pierce County may see light in protecting Shady Acres

Pierce County may see light in protecting Shady Acres

Pilots at Shady Acres Airport in Spanaway, Washington, may be able to continue flying without the threat of restrictions on airport operations. Pierce County officials are reviewing a proposed airport overlay map that would protect the public-use airport from incompatible land use that could lead to restricted operations. AOPA wrote Pierce County Council Chairman Terry Lee last week, urging the council to pass the proposal. This would bring the county into compliance with the Washington State Growth Management Act of 1996, requiring cities and counties to protect their airports from incompatible land use.
