The purpose of this chapter is to provide both airspace protection and land use compatibility with airport operations in the city. This chapter, through establishment of airport zones and corresponding regulations, provides for independent review of development proposals in order to promote the public interest in safety, health, and general welfare in the city and Toole County. Therefore, the city council deems it necessary to regulate uses of land located within or near the traffic patterns of the airport through regulation of height of structures and objects of natural growth, and through regulation of land uses within noise impacted areas and runway protection zones. There is hereby adopted and established the official airport zoning ordinance pursuant to the authority conferred on the city council, consistent with Montana Code Annotated titles 67 and 76. (Ord. 766, 2-16-2004)
