Real Estate Airport Land Project Coordination

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) provides airport land related guidance to publicly licensed airports in the State of Michigan. In most cases, property needed for airport purposes must be identified on an approved Airport Layout Plan (ALP) for future acquisition and environmentally cleared. Land acquisition may be necessary to clear approaches (avigation easements), control incompatible land uses inside Runway Protection Zones (RPZ), or may be required for a capital improvement project such as a runway extension. MDOT provides guidance for Appraisal, Relocation, Eminent Domain (condemnation), land inventory maps (Exhibit "A"), airport property land uses and land releases at federally obligated airports.
