The Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a collaborative effort among Aberdeen Proving Ground and adjacent communities of Harford, Cecil and Kent Counties as well as the Cities of Aberdeen and Havre de Grace, to look at compatible land uses and mitigate any issues with mission impacts as both communities and Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) installation activities grow.

Supported with federal funding from the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA), the JLUS has been a multi-phased approached to assess a multitude of environmental factors and develop a non-binding “playbook” of issues to be addressed at municipal, county, state and installation levels.

The JLUS process has an oversight committee comprised of CSSC partner organizations, and each project is supported by a sub-committee made up of municipal and county planners and DPW reps in addition to APG installation representatives. This continued collaboration allows for alignment in planning efforts and synthesized data sharing among our partners to make informed decisions about mitigation efforts going forward.
