With the purpose of promoting safety between public use airports and the communities that surround them, Humboldt County is looking for feedback on the newly created Draft Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan. The planning document is an update to the state-mandated airport land use for the following airports in Humboldt County:
- California Redwood Coast – Humboldt County Airport
- Dinsmore Airport
- Garberville Airport
- Kneeland Airport
- Murray Field Airport
- Rohnerville Airport
- Samoa Field Airport
- Shelter Cove Airport
The ALUCP was prepared under the direction of the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors in its designated role as the Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) for the region. While Samoa and Shelter Cove are not county-run airports, the ALUC governs all of the public use airports in Humboldt, regardless of the agency that maintains them.
The policies in the document are designed to protect residents by ensuring the expansion of airports and the adoption of land use measures to minimize the public’s exposure to excessive noise and safety hazards within areas around public airports. These policies provide the foundation upon which the ALUC can execute its duty to review land use development in areas around airports.
The Draft ALUCP is available for download on the county website. You can submit comments on the draft plan via the county website through Aug. 20.
A paper copy of the ALUCP can be viewed at:
