About the STS Aviation Commission

Legal Authority

On March 16, 1965, per Board of Supervisors Resolution 12172-1, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors created the Airport Advisory Committee as an advice-giving committee to the Board on Aviation issues. Resolution No. 53319, April 19, 1976, re-designated the composition and functions of the Airport Advisory Committee and renamed the committee the Aviation Commission for Sonoma County.


There are seven members of the Commission. One member is nominated by each member of the Board of Supervisors and two at-large members are nominated jointly by the Airport liaison member of the Board and the Board member’s alternate. Aviation Commission members serve at the pleasure of the Board. The members of the Aviation Commission serve without compensation.
