  • Airport Affected Area Subcommittee

 A subcommittee of the Planning Board has been tasked with drafting Airport Affected Area regulations for the area  surrounding the Ravalli County Airport in Hamilton, Montana.

 The Planning Board Airport Affected Area subcommittee completed their initial review of the draft Airport Affected Area  standards and decided to move the document onto the full Planning Board for their review. Therefore, the Planning Board  Airport Affected Area subcommittee will likely not meet again.

 While it is not anticipated that the group will meet again, when the full Planning Board begins review of the document they  may decide to remand portions of the draft back to the subcommittee so we do not anticipate that the subcommittee will be  dissolved at this time. For more information on the Airport Affected Area, please visit the Airport Affected Area page.
