Challenge to City of Hillsboro's Withdrawal of Airport Oversight

A land use challenge ("Petition for Review") was filed with the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA) in response to Ordinance #6037 passed by the City of Hillsboro on December 4, 2012, which repealed sections of the City's Municipal code that applied to aviation oversight. The City claimed that it has no authority to regulate aviation due to pre-emption by federal law. Oregon Aviation Watch disagrees, citing the City's own Comprehensive Plan and state and federal statutes to assert that the City, in fact, has a responsibility to oversee the role of aviation in the community.
