Airport personnel are invited to a TRB webinar on Tuesday, December 10, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) : Evaluating Compatibility Zoning at General Aviation Airports.

States and local jurisdictions have enacted and implemented airport height, hazards, and land use compatibility zoning laws to varying degrees. Webinar presenters will evaluate the effectiveness of these laws in preventing flight hazards and incompatible land uses around general aviation (GA) airports. They will discuss how key aviation stakeholders can assist local governments in establishing and implementing more effective airport land use compatibility measures.
