California Supreme Court
Muzzy Ranch Co. v. Solano County Airport Land Use Commission
Case No. FCS020127
The California Supreme Court issued a decision June 21st that will have a significant impact on future airport land use planning in California. In 2002 the Solano County Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) updated its Travis Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (TALUP). A developer, Muzzy Ranch Company (Muzzy), filed a lawsuit to invalidate the plan. In its deliberations the Court interpreted the California Aeronautics Law, the California Environmental Quality Act and the public housing law before ruling that the TALUP was valid.
