It appears this question refers to the residential properties purchased both under the runway protection zone (RPZ) and noise buyout projects. These properties are located in the City of Chamblee, on the airports north side, and just off of Clairmont Road in unincorporated DeKalb County, on the airports southwest corner. All of the houses were purchased under a totally voluntary program with the bulk of the funding coming from the FAA. Additional matching funds came directly out of the airport enterprise fund and not from the countys general tax revenues. Under the federal funding agreement made with the FAA for the noise buyout properties, the airport sponsor/owner (DeKalb County) is required to redevelop the properties in a manner compatible with the continuing existence of the airport. How this is done and for what purpose the land is used is left to the discretion of the airport owner, as long as the land use is compatible with the continuing existence of the airport.
