Napa County Airport Land Use Commission

The Napa County Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) establishes land use policies for areas located within the flight path surrounding Napa County airports.  As required by State Aeronautics Law, the ALUC reviews land use compatibility issues for development within airport influence zones guided by the Napa County Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan.  Airport compatibility issues include safety, noise, overflight and airspace protection. The Napa County ALUC comprises the five Napa County Planning Commissioners and two at-large members with aviation expertise, appointed by the Board of Supervisors. The ALUC meets on a quarterly basis in February, May, August and November, although Special Meetings are scheduled, as needed.
