Important Training

    New zoning requirements for “airport hazard areas” take effect on July 1. An “airport hazard area” can be located within any city or county, and is not contingent on an airport being located within your jurisdiction. This critically important webinar with the Florida Department of Transportation will provide information about the changes that need to be made to your city’s existing regulations and processes. We will cover everything you need to know in order to be in compliance with this law including a review of the new criteria for FDOT evaluation of permit applications, new criteria and processes for political subdivision’s airport zoning regulations, and modifications to land use compatibility regulations.
