Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) - 2016

2013-08-20ALUCAgenda.pdfThe purpose of the Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) is “to protect public health, safety, and welfare by ensuring the orderly expansion of airports and the adoption of land use measures that minimize the public’s exposure to excessive noise and safety hazards within areas around public airports to the extent that these areas are not already devoted to incompatible uses.”  Commissions have been established for all counties with public use airports within the state of California. ALUCs are formed with the specific intent of implementing state law (Public Utilities Code) regarding airports and surrounding land use compatibility.

The Commission shall consist of seven members to be selected as follows: Two representatives of the cities appointed by the City Selection Committee, two members representing the County appointed by the Board of Supervisors, two members representing the airports within the county appointed by a selection committee comprised of the managers of all the public airports within the county, and one member representing the general public appointed by the other six members of the Commission.

The Airport Land Use Commission holds public meetings on the third Wednesday of the month, as needed, at 9:00 am in the Board of Supervisors Chambers. Please check below for meeting agendas/minutes.

For more information, please contact Senior Planner Mark Michelena at (530) 538-7376 or
