In this research, we focus on a land use study of vertiport planning. Vertiports are an emerging and special land use category. They will require available land with safe clearance, political support, equitable community acceptance, and compatible zoning. General plans and zoning ordinances in California have yet to adopt vertiport use classifications due to limited existing data. In this research, we will first complete an extensive literature review, followed by an in-depth case study based on San Francisco Bay Area, and then make recommendations on both general land use policies for vertiport planning and a template for future land use studies in other regions in California.
