Military Operations - Noise and Safety Compatibility Workshop

The Department of Defense and the California Governor's Office of Planning and Research (OPR) will conduct a "Noise and Safety Compatibility Workshop" on July 22, 2014 at the Sacramento International Airport.

The workshop focus will be directed toward local, State, and Federal agencies in California surrounding military airports and training or testing ranges. Military operations can produce noise and safety conditions that may not be compatible with certain surrounding land uses. Conversely, local land use jurisdictions may permit new development that could impede military operations. The purpose of this workshop is to educate, train, and exchange information with local, State, and Federal agencies to foster a better understanding of how noise, safety, compatibility, and land uses are inter-related.

This innovative workshop will include a live demonstration of military aircraft noise characteristics, case studies describing development of Accident Potential Zones (APZs) and Weapons Danger Zones produced by military operations, and a discussion centered on methods available to implement land use regulations that promote land development compatible with military operations. Supplemental materials and a workshop syllabus binder will be provided.
