Committee Overview


Who Guided the Development of the Joint Land Use Study?

Two committees, comprising city, county, military, and other stakeholders guided the development of the JLUS.  These committees are:

Policy Committee (PC)

This committee included elected officials who represent the various communities in the JLUS Study Area, as well as leadership from Fort Pickett MTC.  The PC was responsible for direction of the JLUS and for assisting with the establishment of a process to monitor implementation of adopted policies. The PC was important for developing and maintaining relationships between key stakeholders, the communities, and the project consultant team.

Technical Committee (TC)

This group contained representatives from local jurisdictions, agencies, and the military, as well as other stakeholders as necessary with expertise in one or more of the 25 compatibility factors that were assessed throughout the JLUS process.  The TC identified and addressed technical issues, provided feedback on report development, and assisted in the development and evaluation of implementation strategies.
