School & State Building Evaluations

General Considerations

Requests for site evaluations will come from the California Department of Education School Facilities Planning Division (EC 17215), Community College District (EC 81033), or responsible State Agency or Office (PUC 21655), as appropriate. Evaluations are to be completed within 30 working days of receipt of a complete request, which must include adequate maps (see Map Criteria). The evaluation report will be sent to the requesting agency, as outlined above, and not released to other outside parties, as the Aeronautics recommendation is just one part of the requesting agency's overall evaluation.

The evaluation will include a review of where the proposed site lies relative to aircraft flight paths and aircraft generated noise, the height of proposed structures relative to Federal Aviation Regulation Part 77 imaginary surfaces (see FAR Part 77), existing and forecast aviation activity for each airport runway, and consistency with adopted airport land use plans, military Air Installation Compatible Use Zone studies, and General Plans and similar planning documents. CCR 3570 (for K-12 school evaluation pursuant to EC 17215 and the California Airport Land Use Planning Handbook (Figures 3A, 3B, and 4B-4G, in particular) will be utilized in the evaluation and comments from the airport owner/operator and Airport Land Use Commission having jurisdiction will be considered. Additionally, an on - site flight or ground evaluation of the proposed site will be conducted.
