  1. Airport Compatible Land Use Marlene L. Gafrick, Director City of Houston Planning & Development Department Eric Potts, Deputy Director of Planning, Design & Construction City of Houston, Houston Airport System

  2. FAA LETTER • Federal airport development grant agreements require City to adopt measures to ensure land development compatible with airport operations. • Protect FAA’s investment of $667 million since 1983. • Federal assistance for future airport development and buy-outs may be limited without controls.

  3. HOUSTON AIRPORT SYSTEM’S IMPACT The three combined assets of Bush Intercontinental, Hobby and Ellington contribute more than $24 billion to Houston’s economy annually. More than 387,000 metric tons of air cargo and 52 million passengers were served by the Houston Airport System in 2007. 4th-largest multi-airport system in the U.S. and the 6th-largest in the world. $3.6 billion invested through CIP since 1986 and $2.3 billion in projects planned through CIP.

  4. LEGISLATIVE REVIEW • Amended Chapter 211 and 241 of the Local Government Code in 2007 - Clarified no zoning referendum needed to adopt airport land use regulations. • Reviewed measures adopted by other airports. • Same statute (in place more than 50 years) that allows the City to enact height hazard restrictions allows us to adopt compatible land use restrictions.

  5. IAH BUSH GROWTH 1955-2006

  6. LAND USE CONCERNS IN AIRPORT PROXIMITY • At IAH Bush, new residential development encroaches on key runway noise zones. • Recent Cases: • Greens Glen. This proposed subdivision will be located on centerline of a future runway, partly within the runway protection zone and mostly within the runway’s future DNL (noise) 65 contour and Tier 1. • Northport Park – This proposed subdivision will be partially located in Tier 2.

  7. CREATION OF 3 TIERS • Tier 1 – Primarily based on future noise contours,including 65 DNL extended to property line boundaries • Tier 2 – Followed natural boundaries (i.e. streets, bayous, etc.) • Tier 3 – Predefined by state law (3 x 5 mile box)
