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.


More information on the State Aeronautics Act.


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.

FAA’s 7460 Project Review

Proposing structures that could penetrate 14 CFR Part 77 surfaces must file Form 7460 with the FAA to determine if 7460 review is required. If so, you must file with the FAA at least 45 days prior to construction. FAA’s Notice Criteria Tool will assist in applying Part 77 Notice Criteria.


Upcoming ALUC meetings:

The Commission meets at 2:00 pm in the Fresno COG Sequoia Conference Room. Typically, the ALUC meets every other month. However, during the 2019 calendar year meetings will be held monthly provided they receive ample requests for ALUC review.
