How to fund an Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan

CIP_CASP 2012-2021

Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) — formerly known as a Comprehensive Land Use Plan or CLUP, is an eligible project that can be funded through the California Aid to Airports Program, State Acquisition and Development (A&D) grant. In order to be eligible, A&D grants must first be included in the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and must be approved by the California Transportation Commission (CTC).

A&D projects are selected from the CIP using the CTC-approved priority matrix, selections are based first on safety, and ALUCP’s are considered priority ranking one. The CIP is developed every odd year (ex. FY 2011/2012), which also must be approved by the CTC. As a result of the project selection process, the Division biennially develops the 3-year Aeronautics Program (Program), and like the CIP, the Program must then be approved by the CTC. ALUCPs receive 30 percent of the overall Program. Since an ALUCP should be updated every 10-years and projects may not be funded for up to 4-years, we highly recommend that all interested parties add their ALUCP project to the CIP as soon as possible to be considered for future State fiscal year’s funds.

The next CIP will be compiled by summer of 2015; consequently, the new Aeronautics Program will be developed in 2016. It is important to note that due to revenue transfers to the State General Fund, the sluggish economy and resulting lowered Aeronautics revenues, the current 2014 Aeronautics Program project delivery is on hold until the needed funds are available – the Program is continuously funded. However, the Division recommends that sponsors enter their ALUCP project request using the Airport System Manager Database (see CIP project data entry procedures below). The Division will send a letter shortly announcing when the process will be initiated and the database will be accessible, including instructions.
