Document Description
Response to Comments received during the Draft Environmental Impact Report noticing period, Final Environmental Impact Report, and Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program for the Byron Airport Development Program. Existing General Plan policies and zoning regulations for Byron Airport prohibit most of the uses necessary for the airport to reach its aviation potential and achieve economic self-sufficiency. To promote economic development, the County intends to amend its Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan, General Plan, and Planned Unit District zoning to substantially broaden the range of uses allowed by-right on airport property. This will include a variety of aviation uses (terminal, hangers, fixed-base operators, aircraft sales, aviation-supporting businesses, etc.) and airport-compatible uses (light industry, warehousing and distribution, general commercial and retail, offices, etc.) Approximately 941,000 square feet of new development is planned.
