Notice is hereby given that a hearing will be held before the Granite Falls Joint Airport Zoning Board for the purpose of considering the adoption of an Airport Zoning Ordinance in the area of the Granite Falls Municipal Airport.
The public hearing will be held on the 16th day of November, 2011, commencing at 7:00 P.M. at the City of Granite Falls Council Chambers (641 Prentice Street). The proposed Ordinance and the accompanying map are available for public inspection at City Hall during regular business hours or online at www.granitefalls.com/airport.
The property affected by the proposed Airport Zoning Ordinance is some, but not all, of the land lying within 14,000 feet of the airport's runways. The types of restrictions proposed for each area are set forth in detail in the proposed Ordinance and map.
The precise restrictions that would be imposed vary depending on the location of the property. The restrictions generally regulate height of structures, the location or size, and use of buildings, and the density of population. The most restrictive provisions would apply to the areas located in a trapezoidal area off the end of each runway, which area extends out from the end of the runway a distance equal to the length of the runway plus two hundred feet.
Persons who believe that they may be affected by the proposed Ordinance are encouraged to review it and ascertain the specific impact that it would have on their property.
