State law requires cities and counties with public use airports to establish Airport Land Use Commissions (ALUC). In Los Angeles County, the Regional Planning Commission also acts as the Airport Land Use Commission. The ALUC coordinates the airport planning of public agencies within the County. The goal of the ALUC is to review proposed updates or expansions of airports as well as development on surrounding properties to make sure that they are compatible. They are concerned with excessive noise, safety hazards, and nearby land uses that could interfere with airport operations. The document they use for their reviews is called a Airport Land Use Plan (or “ALUP”), which set policies to determine how a project is compatible. Although they don’t control airport operations, they do review and make recommendations concerning certain projects at or near airports.
