of steam, or producing heat or glare, shall be carried on in
such a manner that the steam, humidity, heat, or glare shall
not constitute a nuisance at any lot line.

In the M-2 zone, any activity producing humidity in the form

such a manner that the steam, humidity, heat, or glare shall
not constitute nuisance at or beyond any residential or
commercial zone boundary.

shall be corrected immediately.

Where determinations of violation can be made by the Director
using equipment normally available to the County or obtainable
without extraordinary expense, such determination shall be so
made before notice of violation is issued.

Where technical complexity or extraordinary expense makes it
unreasonable for the County to maintain the personnel or equip-
ment necessary to make the determination of violation, then the

termination. If expert findings indicate a violation of these
performance standards, the costs of the determination shall be
assessed against the properties or persons responsible for the
violation in addition to the other penalties prescribed by this
Ordinance. If no violation is found, cost of the determination
shall be paid entirely by the County.

11. Runway A del ind arva on an airport prepared for landing
and take-off of aircraft along its length.

12. Visual runway A runway intended solely for operation using
visual approach procedures with no stra;iglt-in instrument
approach procedures and no instrument designation indicated
on an FAA-approved airport layout plan, a military serviced-
approved military layout plan, or by any planning document
submitted to the FAA by competent authority.

13. Instrument runway A runway having an existing or planned
instrument approach procedure utilizing air navigation
facilities or area-type navigation equipment, for which an
instrument approach procedure has been approved or planned.

B. AIRPORT ZONES AND AIRSPACE HEIGHT LIMITATIONS. In order to carry
out the provisions of this Section, the following airport height
restriction zones are hereby created and established. An area
located in more than one zone of the described zones is consid-
ered to be only in the zone with the more restrictive height
limitation.

1. Primary Zone The area longitudinally centered on a runway,
extending to the end of that runway with the width so
specified for each runway for the most precise approach
existing or planned for either end of the runway. No
structure will be permitted within the primary zone that is
not a part of the landing and take-off area or facilities
and that has a greater height than the nearest point on Lhe
runway center line. The width of the primary zones shall
be as follows:


5-27








a. 250 fct for utility runways having visual
appr *,s only.

b. 500 1i L for utility runways having non-precision
instrument approaches.

c. For other than utility runways the width is:

(1) 500 feetfor visual runways having only visual
approaches.

(2) 500 feet for non-precision instrument runways
having visibility minimums greater than three-
fourths statute mile.

(3) 1,000 feet for a non-precision instrument
approach with visibility m1inimuims as low a;S
three-fourths statute mile, and for precision
instrument runways.

2. Ilorizojtital Zone A horizontal plane 150 feet above the
established airport elevation, encompassing the runways,
primary zones and transitional zones, the perimeter of
which is constructed by swinging arcs of specified radii
from the center of each end of the primary surface of
each runway of each airport and connecting the adjacent
arcs by lines tangent to those arcs. The radius of each
arc is:

a. 5,000 feet for all runways designated as utility or
visual approaches only.

b. 10,000 feet for all other runways.

The radius of the arc specified for each end of a runway
shall have the same arithmetical value. That value will
be the highest determined for either end of the runway.
When a 5,000 foot arc is encompassed by tangents
connecting two adjacent 10,000 foot arcs, the 5,000 foot
arc shall be disregarded. No structure will be permitted
in the horizontal zone that is higher than 150 feet above
the established airport elevation.

3. Conical Zone The area extending outward and upward from
the periphery of the horizontal zone for a distance of
4,000 feet on a slope of 20 to 1. Ile ight limitatiLn::
for structures in the conical zone are 150 feet above
airport eleva tion at the inner boundary of Llthe :zon witii
permitted height increasing one foot vertically for
every twenty feet of horizontal distance outward from the
inner boundary of the zone to a height of 350 feet above
airport elevation at the outer boundary of the zone.


5-28










4. il-pIproacl t The area longitudinally centered on the
extended 'ay centerline and proceeding outward and
upward fMm: each end of the primary surface. The width
of the approach zone is the same at the inner boundary
as the primary surface it adjoins and expands uniformly
to a width of:

a. 1,250 feet fqr that end of a utility runway with
only visual approaches.

b. 1,500 feet for that end of a runway other than a
utility runway with only visual approaches.

c. 2,000 feet for that end of a utility runway with a
non-precision instrument approach.

d. 3,500 feet for that end of a non-precision instrument
runway other thap utility, having visibility minimums
greater than three-fourths of a statute mile.

e. 4,000 feet for that end of a non-precision instrument
runway, other than utility, having a non-precision
instrument approach with visibility minimums' as lo;
as three-fourths statute mile.

f. 16,000 feet for precision instrument approach runways.

5. Approach Surface The approach surface is the same width
and height at the inner boundary'of the primary surface
it adjoins and extends outward and upward for a horizontal
distance of:

a. 5,000 feet at a slope of 20 to 1 for all utility
and visual approach runways.

b. 10,000 feet at a slope of 34 to 1 for all non-
precision instrument runways other than utility.

c. 10,000 feet at a slope of 50 to 1 with an additional
40,000 feet at a slope of 40 to 1 for all precision
instrument runways.

Heights limitations within the approach surface are the
s:ane as the height of the runway end at the inner hou(nldary
and increase at the rates as shown above and will control
all future construction or natural growth. On existing
runways where the thresholds have been displaced and the
threshold lights moved along the runway from the runway
end, if any of the area between the threshold lights and
the red end lights is being used for either the landing
or take-off of aircraft, then the approach surface would
start at the end of the runway for control of future
obstructions.
5-29









At I Ihose i r)orts having def ined runways with spec i. li ly
prepared r .:d surfaces, the primary surface for such
runway (. Is 200 feet beyond each end of the runway
hard sur.... and the approach surface begins at that
point.

6. Transitional Zone* These surfaces extend outward and
upward at right angles to the runway centerline and the
runway centerline extended at a slope of seven feet
to one foot vertical from the sides of the primary surface
and from the sides of the approach surfaces. Transitional
surfaces for those portions of the precision instrument
approach surface which project through and beyond the
limits of the conicnl surface, extend a distance of 5,000
feet horizontally from the edge of the approach surface
and at right angles to the runway centerline.

7. Other Zones in addition to the height limitations
imposed in paragraphs 1 thru 7 of this section, no
structure will be permitted that exceeds 500 feet above
airport elevation within three :;tnatute miiles of any
airport covered hy this S section, and 1i structure will
be permitted within Citrus Count v that would cause a
nilinilluml o)bst.ruct ion i earaince altitude., a minimum descent
altitude or a decision height to be raised.
