(c) Interference with Aircraft Operations. The proposed use or structure shall not reflect glare, emit electronic interference, produce smoke, or store or dispense hazardous materials in such a manner that would endanger aircraft operations or public safety in the event of an aircraft accident.

(e) Noise Standards. Noise level reduction shall be designed and constructed in all structures to maintain maximum interior noise level of 45 dba for residential uses, and 55 dba for commercial and industrial uses.
(f) Easements. An Avigation Easement shall be granted to the appropriate airport and recorded before the issuance of a building permit for those uses established within an AR1, AR2, or AR3.
