Voluntary Land Acquisition Program

The Burlington International Airport (BTV) is implementing a Voluntary Land Acquisition and Relocation Program and will seek to purchase properties within eligible noise sensitive areas on a voluntary basis.  The project involves the purchasing of real property and relocating displaced persons, businesses or farms and removal of the improvements upon the land within the designated acquisition area.  BTV may also convert the acquired land for compatible land uses with covenants or easements retained to assure long-term compatibility with future Airport operations.  BTV will approve eligible property owners within the designated acquisition area, for land acquisition and relocation assistance based upon available funding for each fiscal year of the program.
