...Title

Construction Crane Height Guidance Study Findings and Recommendation.

...Recommendations

As recommended by the Community and Economic Development Committee on February 22, 2021:

(a) 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.

(b) Direct the Administration to:

 (1) 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.

 (2) 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).

 (3) 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.
