Airport Land Use Commission of Fresno County

The ALUC is in existence to protect the public health, safety and welfare by ensuring that orderly development, and prevention of excessive noise and safety hazards around public use airports is followed in accordance to state and local laws. View the State Aeronautics Act and the California Airport Land use Handbook 


ALUCs establish the policies on land uses around the airport, ensuring they are compatible with airport operations. This is done on an advisory basis. ALUCs also evaluate the compatibility of proposed local agency land use policy actions with the relevant provisions within the associated Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (CLUP). They review individual development projects to ensure they are within the noise and safety standards, in accordance with state laws and the CLUP, within the review area of influence of the airport the project is located in.


The current CLUP for each airport within Fresno County is listed below. However, on July 1, 2017 the Fresno Council of Governments entered into a contract with Coffman Associates on behalf of the Fresno County Airport Land Use Commission, to update and combine the following Airport Land Use Plans within Fresno



* Coalinga Airport

* Fresno-Chandler Executive Airport

* Fresno Yosemite International Airport

* Harris Ranch Airport

* Naval Air Station Lemoore

* Reedley Airport

* Selma-Reedley-Firebaugh-Mendota Airports
