§ 162.04  PURPOSES.
   (A)   The Airport Height District (AHD) is established as a regulatory district in the vicinity of the airport. The purposes of the AHD are to protect the airport environs from encroachment of incompatible land uses which present hazards to users of the airport as well as to persons residing or working in the airport vicinity. The regulations imposed in the AHD are designed to place height restrictions on buildings, structures, and trees.
   (B)   It is the intent of this chapter to restrain influences which are adverse to the property and safe conduct of aircraft in the vicinity of the airport, to prevent creation of conditions hazardous to aircraft operation, to prevent conflict with land development which may result in a loss of life and property, and to encourage development which is compatible with airport use characteristics. To this end, the AHD designation is intended to coordinate the purpose and intent of this section with other regulations duly established by Ashe County whose primary intent is to further the purposes set out above.
