Why does Lorain County Regional have a box around its name?
A box around the airport name indicates an airport for which a special air traffic rule has been established. In the case of the Lorain County Regional Airport (KLPR), pilots are required to avoid and remain well clear of Oberlin College due to the existence of a music conservatory which is located south of the airport. All traffic is required to operate to the north of the airport, hence the right-hand traffic pattern establsihed for runway 25.
The details are found in the remarks section of the Chart Supplement entry for Lorain County.
