Brackett Field Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP)

On behalf of the Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC), the Department of Regional Planning (DRP) is developing an Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) for Brackett Field Airport. The ALUCP will set forth land use compatibility policies applicable to future development in the vicinity of the Airport. The policies will be designed to ensure that future land uses in the surrounding area will be compatible with potential long-range aircraft activities at the Airport, and that the public’s exposure to safety hazards and noise impacts are minimized. Once adopted, these policies will provide the basis by which the ALUC can carry out its land use development review responsibilities in accordance with State Law.

Airport Layout Plan Update with Narrative

An approved Airport Layout Plan (ALP) with narrative is required for all public airports that receive state or federal funding. Brackett Field Airport ALP is outdated and does not meet current standards.  The County received a planning grant for additional projects that were not listed on prior ALP's.  This will include, but not limited to: major pavement repairs to the runways, taxiways, ramp/apron areas, and other future capital improvement projects.  The project narrative will update the airport inventory and forecast.  Public Works Aviation Division as-needed airport planning consulting firm is currently working on the ALP update and it is anticipated to be completed by September 2015.
