City of Houston Height Hazard Ordinance Creation

Knudson prepared the 3D mapping of the three Houston airports (Ellington Field, Hobby, Bush Intercontinental) in order to enable City of Houston staff  to ascertain allowable heights for specific parcels based upon the controlling surface.  Knudson worked with the team to address respective concerns and map issues for all three airports.  Finally, Knudson created the final Ordinance maps in a format required for inclusion as a single article in the Code of Ordinance.   Knudson coordinated with the project team, stakeholders, Houston Airport System, and City staff to support and submit the ordinance to the Airport Commission and City Council for review and adoption.
