JLUS Report sj_jlus_report_sm - Page 17

The Seymour Johnson Air Force Base (AFB) and Dare County Range (DCR) Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a collaborative planning effort led by the North Carolina Department of Commerce Rural Economic Development Division in partnership with seven counties—Beaufort, Bertie, Dare, Hyde, Tyrrell, Washington, and Wayne, and the cities of Goldsboro and Washington. The JLUS was undertaken in an effort to guide planning and development in the areas surrounding Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR to help mitigate any existing land use compatibility issues that may lead to encroachment, prevent future issues and enhance coordination among all entities involved in the process. The Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR JLUS encourages a proactive approach to promote increased communication about land use decisions including regulation, conservation, and natural resource management issues that affect both the local communities and the military. The aim of the process is to establish and encourage a working relationship between military installations and neighboring communities so encroachment issues related to current and future missions and local growth can be reduced or prevented. Encroachment refers to the conflicting uses of land, air, water, and other resources that can individually, or cumulatively, impact the military’s ability to carry out its training missions. The compatibility factors considered in this document are described in the Compatibility Assessment (Chapter 5 of the JLUS or Chapter 5 of the Background Report). A review of these factors led to the development of a set of issues, which resulted in the strategies to address compatibility concerns in this report. The recommended strategies are based on a toolbox of methods used to address the use of policy, planning and zoning, coordination and communication, and outreach recommendations is the formation of a JLUS Co responsible for overseeing the implementation years after the JLUS is completed.

A JLUS is a planning process accomplished throu of stakeholders in a defined study area to ident growth management guidelines within, and adj installation. These stakeholders include local co officials, residents, business owners, federal res landholders, nongovernmental organizations, a is intended to establish and encourage a workin military installations and proximate communitie encroachment associated with future mission e Although primarily funded by the Department o Economic Adjustment (OEA), a JLUS is produced communities. The project sponsor and grant ad Johnson AFB and DCR JLUS is the North Carolina Rural Economic Development Division. Seymour Johnson AFB and Dare County Range JLUS Report The Seymour Johnson Air Force Base (AFB) and Dare County Range (DCR)  Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a collaborative planning effort led by the  North Carolina Department of Commerce Rural Economic Development  Division in partnership with seven counties—Beaufort, Bertie, Dare, Hyde,  Tyrrell, Washington, and Wayne, and the cities of Goldsboro and  Washington. The JLUS was undertaken in an effort to guide planning and  development in the areas surrounding Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR to  help mitigate any existing land use compatibility issues that may lead to  encroachment, prevent future issues and enhance coordination among all  entities involved in the process.   The Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR JLUS encourages a proactive approach  to promote increased communication about land use decisions including  regulation, conservation, and natural resource management issues that  affect both the local communities and the military. The aim of the process is  to establish and encourage a working relationship between military  installations and neighboring communities so encroachment issues related  to current and future missions and local growth can be reduced or  prevented. Encroachment refers to the conflicting uses of land, air, water,  and other resources that can individually, or cumulatively, impact the  military’s ability to carry out its training missions.   The compatibility factors considered in this document are described in the  Compatibility Assessment (Chapter 5 of the JLUS or Chapter 5 of the  Background Report). A review of these factors led to the development of a  set of issues, which resulted in the strategies to address compatibility  concerns in this report.  The recommended strategies are based on a  toolbox of methods used to address the use of policy, planning and zoning,  coordination and communication, and outreach methods. One of the key  recommendations is the formation of a JLUS Coordination Committee  responsible for overseeing the implementation progress in the months and  years after the JLUS is completed. The recommended strategies are outlined  in more detail in Chapter 6, Implementation Plan.   1.1 What Is a JLUS? A JLUS is a planning process accomplished through the collaborative efforts  of stakeholders in a defined study area to identify compatible land uses and  growth management guidelines within, and adjacent to, an active military  installation.  These stakeholders include local community, state, and federal  officials, residents, business owners, federal resource agencies and  landholders, nongovernmental organizations, and the military.  The process  is intended to establish and encourage a working relationship among  military installations and proximate communities to prevent and / or ɕՍ )ɽ ͽѕ ݥѣ ɗ ͥ ͥ ɽѠ )ѡ՝ ɥɥ չ ѡ ѵ ͗ = = ) ѵ = )1UO ɽՍ )չѥ̻ Q ɽ ͽ Ʌ Ʌѽ ѡ M嵽 ))ͽ   K )1UO ѡ 9ѣ ɽ ѵ ɍ )IɅ  ٕ ٥ͥ + + + )M嵽ȁ)ͽɔ չI)1ULI)A
