Why conduct a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS)?

A Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is not a requirement, but it is a powerful tool to assess installation and community in its compatible uses, address issues like encroachment, and can be a proactive measure to anticipate issues that could be impactful in future BRAC rounds. The Office of Economic Adjustment has been supportive of funding these efforts across dozens of installation communities nationwide. In fact, in addition to an APG-specific JLUS at our community level, the Maryland Department of Commerce Office of Military and Federal Affairs has conducted one from a statewide perspective that looks at compatibility across the defense communities with a particular focus on the five military installations that have completed a JLUS.
