Airports are an important part of a region's economic base. Yet those who live near them must deal with the noise generated by airport operations. This report looks at how to use noise overlay districts to encourage land-use compatibility within an airport area. It reviews the federal guidelines for establishing noise overlay zones, defines terms used in discussions of airport-related noise problems, and presents models of a zoning ordinance, a subdivision ordinance, a building code, and an easement contract.
