The Blue Canyon Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) is intended to promote compatibility between airport operations and new surrounding land uses considering noise, safety, airspace protection and overflight effects. The ALUCP also serves as a tool for use by the Placer County Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) in fulfilling its duties in reviewing plans, regulations, and certain other actions of local agencies for consistency with the ALUCP criteria. Neither the ALUC nor the ALUCP have authority over existing land uses or over the operation of Blue Canyon Airport..
The ALUC is updating sections of the current ALUCP adopted in February 2014. The need for the update arose primarily because of new airport layout plans (ALPs) for Auburn Municipal and Lincoln Regional Airports recently adopted by the cities of Auburn and Lincoln, respectively. These new ALPs necessitated modification to the compatibility zones and policies for these two airports. No changes to the airport-specific compatibility policies or background information for Blue Canyon Airport are included in the 2021 ALUCP update; these chapters reflect the adoption date of February 26, 2014.
