Mission & Background

The main goal of the Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) is to protect the public health, safety and welfare by ensuring the orderly expansion of airports and the adoption of land use measures that minimize the public’s exposure to extensive noise and safety hazards within areas around airports. Requirements for the creation of ALUCs are established under the California State Aeronautics Act (Public Utility Code Section 21670). ALUC reviews land use compatibility issues for development surrounding airports including safety, noise, overflight and airspace protection. These compatibility issues are identified and analyzed in the Airport Land Use Compatibility Plans for each airport, and implementation of these Plans promotes compatible development around the airports. The ALUC members is comprised of seven Commissioners; two selected by the County Board of Supervisors, two selected by the Cities in Riverside County, two selected by the airport managers, and one selected by the other six.
