§ 155.04  AIRPORT ZONE HEIGHT LIMITATIONS.
   (A)   Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, no structure shall be erected, altered or maintained and no tree shall be allowed to grow in any zone created by this chapter to a height in excess of the applicable height limit herein established for such zone. Such applicable height limitations are hereby established for each of the zones in question as follows:
      (1)   Runway larger than utility visual approach zone.  Slopes 20 feet outward for each foot upward beginning at the end of and at the same elevation as the primary surface and extending to a horizontal distance of 5,000 feet along the extended runway centerline (runway 12-30).
      (2)   Runway larger than utility with a visibility minimum as low as 3/4 mile non-precision instrument approach zone.  Slopes 34 feet outward for each foot upward beginning at the end of and at the same elevation as the primary surface and extending to a horizontal distance of 10,000 feet along the extended runway centerline (runway 17).
      (3)   Precision instrument runway approach zone.  Slopes 50 feet outward for each foot upward beginning at the end of and at the same elevation as the primary surface and extending to a horizontal distance of 10,000 feet along the extended runway centerline; thence slopes upward 40 feet horizontally for each foot vertically to an additional horizontal distance of 40,000 feet along the extended runway centerline (runway 35 planned).
      (4)   Transitional zones.  Slope seven feet outward for each foot upward beginning at the sides of and at the same elevation as the primary surface and the approach surface, and extending to a height of 150 feet above the airport elevation which is 848 feet above mean sea level.  In addition to the foregoing, there are established height limits sloping seven feet outward for each foot upward beginning at the sides of and at the same elevation as the approach surface, and extending to where they intersect the conical surface.  Where the precision instrument runway approach zone projects beyond the conical zone, there are established height limits sloping seven feet outward for each foot upward beginning at the sides of and at the same elevation as the approach surface, and extending a horizontal distance of 5,000 feet measured at 90 degree angles to the extended runway centerline.
      (5)   Horizontal zone.  Established at 150 feet above the airport elevation or at a height of 848 feet above mean sea level.
      (6)   Conical zone.  Slopes 20 feet outward for each foot upward beginning at the periphery of the horizontal zone and at 150 feet above the airport elevation and extending to a height of 350 feet above the airport elevation.
   (B)   Excepted height limitations.  Nothing in this chapter shall be construed as prohibiting the construction or maintenance of any structure or growth of any tree to a height up to 50 feet above the surface of the land.
