Joint Airport Zoning Board (JAZB)

The Joint Airport Zoing Board (JAZB) regulates the land around eight local airports: Bartow Municipal, Lakeland Linder Regional, Lake Wales Municipal, Winter Haven Municipal, Brown Seaplane Base, Chalet Suzanne, River Ranch and Lakeland Airpark.

With this committee acting in a advisory capacity, there is a greater level of assurance that the transportation decisions being made are technically viable and in line with public opinion.
