GSP Environs

Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Environs
Planning Commission


The  airport environs enabling legislation was created via state statute in 1995 for the purpose of assuring land uses compatible with airport operations. The 1995 legislation created the airport environs area and the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Environs Planning Commission, a board separately constituted from the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Commission. The Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Environs Planning Commission is charged with the development of a land use plan for the Airport Environs area, updating the land use plan as necessary, and monitoring the administration and compliance with the plan by Greenville County, Spartanburg County, and the City of Greer.
