Land Use Compatibility
The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (SDCRAA) is in the process of updating
the Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) for San Diego International Airport
(SDIA). SDIA is the primary commercial airport for the San Diego region and it is
critical that it remain viable to serve our growing region and contribute to San
The ALUCP for SDIA will play an important role in ensuring that new development
in the vicinity of the airport is compatible and safe, and that SDIA can continue
to meet the region’s aviation needs.
SDCRAA is hosting a Scoping Meeting for the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) that
will be prepared for the ALUCP. This meeting will provide an opportunity
for the public to offer comments about issues that should be considered as the Draft
EIR is prepared.

The Airport Authority hosted a series of Steering Committee meetings to
provide a forum for public input during the planning process. The Steering Committee
meetings allowed interested members of the public to review technical information
and provide input on the development of ALUCP compatibility maps and policies. Each
meeting focused on a specific topic so participants could attend meetings of
specific interest to them. Meetings were open to all who were interested
May 1, 2012 Safety Zone 3SE
This meeting focused on options that have been recently developed for consideration in Safety Zone 3SE.
January 19, 2012 Wrap-Up
This meeting focused on draft policies that don’t necessarily fit under noise,
safety, airspace, and overflight. They include defining existing use, effective
date, review process, special compatibility considerations, etc. Additionally, the
Airport Influence Area was discussed, which is the boundary resulting from the
combination of all four draft compatibility factors.
November 17, 2011: Safety Part 2
This meeting focused on the draft safety matrix and policies.
September 29, 2011: Safety Part 1
This meeting focused on how safety zones could impact future land use planning around SDIA.
June 16, 2011 and July 21, 2011: Airspace Protection
This meeting focused on how future land use would be impacted by airspace protection
needs for SDIA.
April 28, 2011: Noise
This meeting focused on how noise impacts land use planning around SDIA.
March 9, 2011: Overflight
Overflights are defined as any visible and/or audible passage of aircraft through
an area, including areas beyond those impacted by high levels of noise. The primary
purpose of this compatibility factor is to increase the public’s knowledge and understanding
of airport impacts through buyer awareness measures. The SDIA ALUCP will address
overflight by identifying locations where frequent aircraft overflights occur, along
with suggested buyer awareness measures.
February 23, 2011: SDIA Operations and Environs
Baseline SDIA operating parameters were explored which will be used to develop ALUCP
compatibility factors. Local agencies that might be affected by the ALUCP were also
