Airports in the Region



The Divisions Council continues to advance the Airports in the Region (AIR) initiative, originally endorsed by the Divisions Council in 2004. Since then, work activities have continued sporadically.

Two individuals, Stephanie Ward and Susan Schalk, published a PAS report, Planners and Planes: Airports and Land-Use Compatibility, based on a 2008 National Planning Conference session. The Divisions Council chose to augment this report by developing a series of case studies focused on planning outside of and around airports.

This initiative is ongoing. If you are interested in working on it, please contact Whit Blanton at
