Airport Land Use Compatibility Plans

The ALUCPs and Revised Negative Declarations were adopted for each airport on February 26, 2014 following an 18 month update process. The updates reflect new airport master plans for the Auburn Municipal and Lincoln Regional Airports and revisions to the California Airport Land Use Planning Handbook published in 2011 by the Caltrans Division of Aeronautics.

The ALUCPs serve as a tool for use by the Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) in fulfilling its duty to review airport and adjacent land use projects with the goal of promoting compatible development in the airport vicinity.
