Chapter 333, Florida Statutes (F.S. 333), Airport Zoning, was amended during the 2016 Legislative Session by House Bill (HB) 7061. HB 7061 revises and repeals certain sections of F.S. 333 which will require modification of existing Airport Zoning Regulations previously adopted by local political subdivisions. HB 7061 became effective July 1, 2016, and provides that “any airport zoning regulations in effect on July 1, 2016, which includes provisions in conflict with this chapter shall be amended to conform to the requirements of this chapter by July 1, 2017.” The Department takes the position that although HB 7061 became effective July 1, 2016, Airport Zoning Regulations that comply fully with F.S. 333 (pre-July 1, 2016) remain in effect until July 1, 2017, or when revised by the political subdivision to comply fully with the amended F.S. 333, whichever occurs first. The Department has developed several resource document to reflect the changes to F.S. 333 and the impact on the airport zoning process, including the following: copies of the former Chapter 333 and the current (amended) Chapter 333, a copy of HB 7061 which amends Chapter 333, a PowerPoint presentation on the amended sections of Chapter 333, a recording of a webinar presented regarding the PowerPoint presentation, a matrix comparing the language of the old and new Chapter 333, and a checklist of sections of the new Chapter 333 which should be addressed in the revisions to existing airport zoning regulations. Links to these documents are posted to the ASO website(www.fdot.gov/aviation). The ASO has provided 2 email accounts for the submission to the Aviation Office of amended airport zoning regulations (DOTRegulationsReview@dot.state.fl.us) and airport zoning permit applications (DOTAirportZoning@dot.state.fl.us).
