       Mid-Term Define and Establish Military Awareness Areas DCR MIA LU-1A Issue / Strategy   The northeast North Carolina JLUS Study Partners should incorporate in CAMA Land Use Plans, a Military Influence Area (MIA) consisting of Military Awareness Areas (MAAs) that reflect the types and intensity of compatibility issues. The MIA is the collective geographic area of all of the MAAs combined. The MAAs should be used by counties and local jurisdictions to identify areas where specific compatibility issues are more likely to occur. Implementation of the MIA and associated strategies for these areas will facilitate:     Creating a broader framework for making sound planning decisions in areas subject to military overflight; More accurately identifying areas that can affect or be affected by military missions; Protecting the public’s health, safety, and welfare; and Balancing protection of the military mission with community economic viability. The MAAs for the Dare County Range MIA are defined as follows:   Coordination MAA – Includes land adjacent to the Dare County Range, subject to military low‐level flight operations, and within the 5-mile boundary from the Dare County Range where coordination strategies apply per General Statutes Sections 143-151 and 153A-323(b). Noise MAA – Includes all land located off‐installation within the Dare County Range noise contours greater than 65 decibels (dB) day‐night sound level (DNL) and areas subject to low-level overflight within Military Training Routes, Restricted Areas and Military Operating Areas throughout northeast North Carolina.   Seymour Johnson AFB and Dare County Range JLUS Report Page 111
