Status:  Complete
Report Date:  02/28/2014


Airport zoning generally falls into two categories: height limitation zoning and land use zoning. Most states empower local governments to adopt and enforce airport zoning ordinances, and some states require it. MnDOT is analyzing Minnesota's existing statutes and rules regarding airport safety zoning to determine whether updates are needed. MnDOT is especially interested in identifying how other states approach the issue of requiring local governments to enact land use zoning. This synthesis serves as a step toward identifying other states' approaches to airport zoning and will help inform future updates to Minnesota statutes and rules.
