1.4 Why Prepare a Joint Land Use Study ?
Although military installations and nearby communities are separated by a defined property boundary , they often share natural and manmade resources such as land use , airspace , water , and infrastructure . Operational areas such as flight patterns and specialized airspace expand the military influence area footprint beyond defined property boundaries . Despite the many positive interactions among local jurisdictions , agencies , and the military , and because so many resources are shared , the activities or actions of one entity can create unintended impacts on another , resulting in conflicts . As communities develop and expand in response to growth and market demands , land use approvals have the ability to locate potentially incompatible development closer to military installations and operational areas . The result can generate new , or exacerbate existing , land use and other compatibility issues , often referred to as encroachment , which can negatively affect community safety , economic development , and sustainment of military activities and readiness . This threat to military readiness is currently one of the military ’ s greatest concerns .
Collaboration and joint planning among military installations , local jurisdictions , and agencies protects the long‐term viability of existing and future military missions . Working together also enhances local economies and industries before compatibility becomes an issue . Recognizing the close relationship that should exist between installations and adjacent communities , the OEA implemented the JLUS program to mitigate existing and future conflicts and enhance communication and coordination among all affected stakeholders . This program aims to preserve the sustainability of local communities while protecting current and future research , development , acquisition , testing , and missions at Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR .
Public Outreach The JLUS process was designed to create a locall builds consensus and garners stakeholder suppo and objectives , the Seymour Johnson AFB and D public outreach program providing a variety of p interested parties .
Stakeholders An early step in any planning process is stakehol and involving them early is instrumental to ident resolving their most important issues through th strategies and measures . Stakeholders include in organizations , and governmental entities interes affecting the outcome of the JLUS document . St Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR JLUS include :
• Local jurisdictions ( counties , cities , and to
• DOD officials ( including OEA representativ personnel
• Local , county , regional , and state planning management agencies
• Landholding and regulatory federal agenc
• The public ( including residents , businesse
• Environmental advocacy organizations
• Nongovernmental organizations ( NGOs )
• Other special interest groups ( including lo and school districts )
Background Report
1.4 Public Outreach Why Prepare a Joint Land Use Study? The JLUS process was designed to create a locally relevant document that  builds consensus and garners stakeholder support.  To achieve the JLUS goals  and objectives, the Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR JLUS process included a  public outreach program providing a variety of participation opportunities for  interested parties.  Although military installations and nearby communities are separated by a  defined property boundary, they often share natural and manmade  resources such as land use, airspace, water, and infrastructure.  Operational  areas such as flight patterns and specialized airspace expand the military  influence area footprint beyond defined property boundaries. Despite the  many positive interactions among local juri X[ۜ0Y[Y\0[0pZ[]\K0[0X]\pX[p\\\\p\Y 0pX]]Y\ܰX[ٰۜۙp[]p[ܙX]p[[[Y0[\X۰[\0\[[[ۙX˰0\[][]Y\][0[0^[0[\ۜpܛ0[0X\]0[X[0[0\p\ݘ[]ppX[]p]p[X[p[\]Xp][Y[0\Z[]\p[[][ۜ[0\][ۘ[0\X\˰00p\[0[[\]p]0ܰ^X\]p^\[0[0\p[0\\]X[]p\Y\0ٝ[Y\Y0\[ܛXY[ 0X0[Y]][pYX0[][]pY]K0XۛZX][Y[ 0[0\Z[Y[0ٰZ[]\pX]]Y\[0XY[\˰0\X]0Z[]\pXY[\\\[pۙpٰpZ[]\x&\ܙX]\0ۘ\˰ZZ\[X\p\0[[p[[\\ZZ\Y[YX][ۋ0[ܛZ[[0[[[pX\p\[[Y[[0Y[YZ[0[\[[0[0\[Z\[0[\ܝ[0\Y\Y0p][Y[0ٰ[Yܘ]Y0]YY\[0YX\\\˰ZZ\[Yp[]YX[0ܛ\0ܙ[^][ۜ0[0ݙ\Y[[0[]Y\[\\Y0[0YXY0K0ܰYX[p]YpٰpT[ 0ZZ\Y[YYY0ܰp^[[\۰Q[0԰T[YNXܘ][۰[0[0[[[[ۙZ[]\p[[][ۜ0[0\\X[ۜ0[0Y[Y\Xpۙ$\pXX[]pٰ^\[[0]\pZ[]\pZ\[ۜ˰0ܚ[]\[[[\[0XۛZY\[0[\Y\Yܙp\]X[]pXY\[\YK0Xۚ^[pp[][ۜ\0]0[0^\0]Y[[[][ۜ[0YX[0[][]Y\0pPp[\[Y[Y0pTܘ[pZ]Y]p^\[[0]\pۙX[0[[p[][X][۰[0ܙ[][۰[[ۙ[0YXY0ZZ\˰0\ܘ[pZ[\\\pp\Z[X[]pٰ[0[][]Y\[pX[\[0[0]\p\X\ 0][Y[ 0X]Z\][ۋ0\[0[0Z\[ۜ]0^[[\۰Q[0ԋXܛ[0\ܝ0k[0\\X[ۜ [Y\0]Y\0[0ۜpk0ٙXX[ [Y[Pp\\[]]\p[0Z[]\p[[][۰\ۛ[0k[ 0[K0Y[ۘ[ 0[0]p[[0Y[]ܞK0[0[0X[Y[Y[0Y[Y\k[[[0Y[]ܞpY\[0Y[Y\0kpXX [Y[\Y[0\[\\0[0[ۙ\pk[\ۛY[[0YXpܙ[^][ۜ0kۙݙ\Y[[0ܙ[^][ۜ pk\XX[0[\\0ܛ\ [Y[[0YX][ۘ[0[]][ۜ[00\XpYp x$
