The Airport Zoning Ordinance is established to regulate and restrict the heights of structures and objects of natural growth around the airport to enhance safety of aircraft in flight and objects on the ground.
Gillespie County History: The original zoning ordinance was created by the first Zoning Committee on May 12, 1948 (Members: Fred Matthies, Alfred Petsch, Eric Jenschke, Alfred Neffendorf, and Hans Hannemann).
In 1979, the County appointed a new committee to update the ordinance. The Commissioners and Judge Bryla appointed Richard Sechrist (Chairman), Marvin Prochnow (Secretary), James Kemp, Hans Hannemann and Kenneth Wahl. They adopted the new ordinance and hazard chart on Aug 21, 1979, and created the “Board of Adjustment.”
The ordinance adopted on Aug 21, 1979 is the current airport zoning ordinance. The current “Hazard Zoning Chart” is dated 1978. It is based on a 3,800 foot runway.
On Nov 25, 2019, the Gillespie County Commissioners approved the process of updating the airport zoning ordinance via a Joint Airport Zoning Board.
