Airport Land Use Commission of Fresno County

The Airport Land Use Commission is tasked with the compatibility planning for land uses surrounding nine private, public, and military airports throughout Fresno County. The purpose is to protect public health, safety, and welfare through compatible development with airports and minimize the public’s exposure to noise and safety hazards. This is achieved through the implementation of policies in Compatibility Plans for each of the airports.
