    Can anyone tell me, is there any part of a Fly in community (air park) that a fire inspector would need to look at.
    Each lot is zoned residential, with no common area but a parking lot and street/runway

    Commercial building

    I would say just ask the question

    I do not think it has come up before, except with John Travolta.

    Do you have a zoning question or building code question???

    I was asking for the building question. we have an area that wants to put in a private runway and then there houses would be zoned out for each house. I was just checking this is the first for me.

    So re reading the op

    From the fire code only,

    The normal stuff, but seems like most would be in the development code or what ever your ahj calls it

    Normal residential access
    Normal fire hydrant spacing and flow

    As far as the runway maybe access, a couple of hydrants to supply the fire trucks, near the access to the run way

    The houses are going to have to have streets to them, not sure if they will be city or private, depending on how your ahj handles it.

    I am guessing you do not sprinkle your houses?

    Sawhorses can post directly to the website.

    Other people have to arrange third party hosting of the file and post the link here.
