§ 1-3-6 Joint zoning boards.
Where an airport is owned or controlled by a political subdivision or where any
other publicly owned airport is in one or more political subdivisions and where
any airport hazard area appertaining to that airport is located outside the
territorial limits of the political subdivision or subdivisions, the political
subdivisions in which the airport and airport hazard area or areas are located
may, by ordinance or resolution adopted, create a joint airport zoning board.
The board shall have the same power to adopt, administer, and enforce airport
zoning regulations applicable to the airport hazard area or areas in question
as that vested by § 1-3-5 in the political subdivision within which the
area is located. Each joint board shall have as members two (2) representatives
appointed by the city or town council or other legislative body of each
political subdivision participating in its creation or addition. Another member
is to be chairperson, elected by a majority of the members appointed.
