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, 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.
