Zoning Boards

Zoning Our Airports

Each of the MAC’s Joint Airport Zoning Boards (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 made up of representatives from the cities, counties and/or townships that control land use development around an airport.

Using 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 development.
