The cost of relocating private residences exposed to excessive aviation noise levels at the nation's airports is a major factor in determining the viability of a comprehensive airport relocation and soundproofing program. The Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 is reviewed to determine applicability to a relocation program and to define airport-specific relocation cases and costs. Procedures are provided for: (1) developing a well-defined set of cases for which relocation costs may be estimated; (2) determining the costs in current dollars for each expense item in each relocation case; and (3) determining the frequency of occurrence for each case as applied to specific airports. Total costs for all cases for a hypothetical airport relocation effort are provided. Supporting data and equations used are presented.
