Airport Zoning Rules

Proposed revisions

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is considering amendments to rules governing public airport zoning standards adopted by joint airport zoning boards or other local units of government. The amendments will bring the zoning standards into conformance with statutory changes made in recent years and provide greater flexibility to local units of government. The Department also requests comments on the addition of rules incorporating existing standards for funding airport clear zone acquisition to enhance aviation safety by ensuring compatible land use. Adopting long-existing funding standards into rule will make the standards more easily accessible and transparent.

Request for comments

Interested persons or groups may submit comments or information on these possible rules in writing until further notice is published in the State Register that the Department intends to adopt or to withdraw the rules. Written comments, questions, requests to receive a draft of the rules when it has been prepared, and requests for more information on these possible rules should be directed to: Andrea Barker, Policy and Administrative Rules Coordinator, at Minnesota Department of Transportation, 395 John Ireland Boulevard, MS 130, St. Paul, MN 55155, or andrea.barker@state.mn.us.

Revision documents

A draft of the proposed rules and Statement of Need and Reasonableness will be posted when they become available.
