Airport Land Use Compatibility

The current Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) for San Diego International Airport (SDIA) was adopted by the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority in 2014. In 2023, the Authority began identifying what needed to be updated in the SDIA ALUCP based on the new Airport Layout Plan and airport activity forecasts, in accordance with the Caltrans Division of Aeronautics California Airport Land Use Planning Handbook.

The draft updated SDIA ALUCP is now available for public review. Links to the draft updated SDIA ALUCP including appendices can be found below. Comments on the documents are requested by Wednesday, July 31, 2024 and may be submitted by emailing or by mailing comments to the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, P.O. Box 82776, San Diego, CA 92138.

The Authority will be holding a virtual public meeting on Tuesday, June 25, 2024 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. PDT, to provide information about the draft updated SDIA ALUCP. The meeting will begin with a presentation followed by an opportunity to ask questions. The link to access the virtual meeting will be posted one day prior to the meeting date. Individuals requiring reasonable accommodations may call (619) 400-2464 or email

About the ALUCP

An ALUCP provides guidance on appropriate land uses surrounding airports to protect the health and safety of people and property within the airport vicinity. At the same time, an ALUCP protects the public investment in the airport by limiting encroachment of new incompatible land uses which might restrict airport operations. An ALUCP establishes standards for the compatibility of newly proposed land uses and substantial expansion or reconstruction of existing land uses in the airport vicinity. Otherwise, it has no effect on existing residences or businesses. An ALUCP also has no effect upon airport operations or on-airport development.
