Airport Use Ordinance

After nearly two years and over 40 meetings with residents, the voters of Douglas County approved a new Airport Use Ordinance on November 2, 2010 that serves to maintain the rural character of our great community, while continuing to support the wonderful public value of the Airport. The new Ordinance replaces the previous weight ordinance that was originally approved by voters in 1982. The new Ordinance allows the Airport to be compliant with federal regulations, continue funds for infrastructure maintenance, places various limitations on infrastructure growth, and establishes enforcements in the event an overweight aircraft operates at the facility.

Aircraft owners and operators are responsible for reviewing and complying with Section 2: Limitations on Operational Use. Aircraft owners and operators are also responsible for reviewing and complying with Section 4: Limitations on Airport Noise, including a voluntary curfew from 10:00pm to 6:00am.
