This Board was created to help enforce the
BWI Airport Noise Zone Regulations. These reg-
ulations establish a "noise zone" around BWI
Airport, within which zone new land develop-
ment is prohibited if it is incompatible with air-
port noise levels.

The Board of Airport Zoning Appeals, origi-
nally created by Chapter 450, Acts of 1968, had
its membership altered and reconstituted by
Chapter 443, Acts of 1976. The Board now con-
sists of eight members appointed by the Governor
with the advice of the Secretary of Transportation
and the advice and consent of the Senate.

Three members of the Board must be residents
ot Anne Arundel County. Three members repre-
sent Baltimore County and two, including the
chairperson, represent areas in which a State-
owned airport is not located. The chairperson of
the Board is designated by the Governor. Mem-
bers serve four-year terms.

The Board is authorized and empowered to
hear, decide, and grant specific variances frnm
airport zoning regulations in cases of practical
difficulty or unnecessary hardship (Code Trans-
portation Article, sec. 5-506).
