Davis-Monthan Air Force Base Airfield Compatibility Study

The Planning Center developed the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base Airfield Compatibility Study to provide baseline data required to define specific land compatibility issues impacting flight operations adjacent to a key Air Combat Command Installation in Tucson, Arizona. Key aspects of this study included:

  • establishing a planning and public participation process to improve communication with jurisdictions and the community;
  • developing a proactive approach for monitoring future growth; and
  • identifying off-installation areas of concern related to growth patterns, land use compatibility, and affected flight patterns

The planning process included coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Department of Defense, the Arizona Office of the Governor, the Arizona Department of Commerce, the Pima Association of Governments, the City of Tucson, Pima County, the Tucson International Airport Authority, and stakeholder groups.
