...Title

Construction Crane Height Guidance Study Findings and Recommendation.  (Airport/Economic Development)

...Recommendations

1. Accept the findings from a completed Construction Crane Height
    Guidance Study, which would affirm the City’s development
    commitment for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to
    protect the primary Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS)
    utilized by Mineta San José Airport's Air Carriers to determine
    the maximum crane heights in the Downtown Core and Diridon
    Station Area.

2. Direct the Administration to:
        a. Prepare a Construction Crane Guidance Document to be

             included in all development permits for projects in the

             Downtown Core and Diridon Station Area requiring

             temporary construction cranes.

        b. Include in the Construction Crane Guidance Document,

             the following three methods for developers to minimize

             impacts on air service:

                 (i)   Utilize crane jumps to minimize duration cranes are at

                        maximum height.

                 (ii)  Limit maximum crane heights to a 6-month window.

                 (iii) Schedule maximum crane heights during non South
                        flow months of April through September
                        (i.e., departures towards downtown).

        c. Explore a construction crane permit fee to support a
            Landing Fee Reduction Program for air carriers that incur
            either cargo or passenger weight impacts on account of
            construction cranes in the Downtown Core and Diridon
            Station Area

3. Cross-reference the proposed item to the full City Council on
    March 9, 2021.
