School & State Building Evaluations

Pursuant to State law, the Division of Aeronautics is required to evaluate certain proposed K12 school (Education Code (EC) 17215), Community College (EC 81033), and State building (Public Utilities Code (PUC) 21655) sites. These evaluations are required for proposed sites within 2 nautical miles of an airport. Links with details about these statutes, and the specific requirements of each, are provided below. However, in general, the evaluations aim to determine whether a proposed site provides an adequate level of safety and non-disruptive noise and, in so doing, enables the guiding principles of safety for the building occupants and comprehensive community planning. Additionally, EC 17215 required the Department of Transportation to adopt regulations with criteria for K-12 school site evaluation. California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 21, Section 3570 was promulgated for this purpose, and information on CCR 3570 is also provided below.
