AIRPORTS AND THEIR ENVIRONMENT: A GUIDE TO ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING

This document is designed to assist and guide airport planners, regional planners, and all other interested parties in identifying and resolving environmental problems associated with airport planning and development. It treats airport environmental planning as an integral part of the comprehensive regional planning process. The development of the material presented herein involved a combination of selected airport case studies, literature review, and intensive discussions and interviews with public and private agency representatives, to identify, elaborate upon, and describe methodologies for measuring relevant airport environmental factors. The complexity and diversity of the subject matter made such an approach desirable, and in execution this approach effectively addressed itself to the problems at hand. Since a major objective is the development of information and references to assist airport planners in effectively integrating environmental planning with airport planning and comprehensive regional planning, a multi-disciplinary approach to the work was utilized. Case studies of six airports were conducted of which three are presented in the Appendix.
