Crystal Joint Airport Zoning Board

Crystal Joint Airport Zoning Board

The JAZB's Role

A Joint Airport Zoning Board (JAZB) is tasked with developing a zoning ordinance for land uses around an airport as described in Minnesota Statute 360.061 through 360.074 and Minnesota Rules 8800.1200 and 8800.2400.  A JAZB is comprised of representatives from the cities, counties and/or townships that control land use development around an airport. 

Through a collaborative process, a JAZB seeks to develop an airport zoning ordinance that achieves a balance between a reasonable level of public safety while facilitating compatible community development.

In the case of Crystal Airport, the municipalities include Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, City of Crystal, City of New Hope, Minneapolis, and Robbinsdale.
