The SACOG Board of Directors serves as the Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) for Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba counties. California’s State Aeronautics Act (Public Utilities Code sections 21670 et seq.), identifies the role and responsibilities of ALUCs in land use planning. The Act is intended to ensure that proposed land uses in areas around public-use airports are compatible with continued airport operations.
One of the ALUC’s primary functions is to develop and adopt an Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) for each public-use airport within its jurisdiction. The ALUCP includes land use policies focused on four compatibility factors: safety, noise, airspace, and overflight. Currently, SACOG is working with the Sacramento County Department of Airports to prepare the update to the ALUCP for Mather Airport – information as described below.
The SACOG Board of Directors, serving as the Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC), is being presented with a recommendation to adopt the draft Mather Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) update and its associated environmental document at is meeting on Thursday, August 18, 2022. The board’s responsibilities as the ALUC are to ensure that proposed land uses in areas around airports are compatible with airport operations.
