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. In the case of Flying Cloud Airport the cities include Chahassen, Eden Prairie and Shakopee.


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.
