In February 1991, Matropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) selected the consulting team of Aviation Planning Inc., Wyle LAboratories Inc. and the Center for Energy and the Urban Environment to design the Part 150 Land Use Program Implementation plan at Minneapolis/St. Paul International (MSP) with MAC staff. In MArch 1992, this design phase was completed resulting in 3 final land use programs: sound insulation; purchase guarantee; and land acquisition. Each program definition was designed to reflect the multijurisdictional interests of communities within the Ldn 65 noise contours. The design and development of the three primary MSP prgrams during the April 1991 - March 1992 time period required tasks that included public input programs, developing a financial method of allocation of yearly 150 funds among the five jurisdictions, city-specific program selection and prioritization methods and city-specific administrative plan development. A summary of the design tasks accomplished is given.
