Policy: Airports, No. 1

" To enable the Bay Area to have adequate airport facilities, and to minimize the harmful effects of airport expansion upon the Bay, a regional airport system plan should be prepared at the earliest possible time by a responsible regional agency. The study should have the full participation of all governmental agencies having regionwide planning responsibilities and all other agencies, including private groups, having a substantial interest in the Bay Area's present or future aviation needs and facilities. The plan should include as a minimum:
An analysis of expected air traffic in the Bay Area, by types-commercial, military, and general (small plane);An analysis of alternative sites for building new airports or expanding present ones, taking into account the effect of each site on the surrounding environment; An analysis of the surface transportation necessary to serve the alternative sites for future airports; and An analysis of theeffecls of new airports upon the location of jobs and homes within the Bay Area."
