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 Lake Elmo Airport the municipalities include Baytown Township, Oak Park Heights, Lake Elmo, and West Lakeland Township.
Through a collaborative process, a JAZB seeks to develop an airport zoning ordinance that achieves a balance between providing a reasonable level of safety while allowing for compatible community development.
