What Will the Fort Pickett MTC Joint Land Use Study Address?
The Fort Pickett MTC JLUS will provide stakeholders with:
Compatibility, in relationship to military readiness, is the balance and / or compromise between community and military needs and interests. The goal of compatibility planning is to promote an environment where both entities can coexist successfully. JLUS Study Area data on existing conditions obtained from the JLUS Policy Committee, JLUS Technical Committee, and the public will be analysed to identify current and future compatibility issues. This analysis will also identify the influence of regulatory measures on land use decisions and consider existing and projected development trends within the JLUS Study Area. A set of 25 compatibility factors will be considered in order to identify the specific issues that influence land use compatibility in the Fort Pickett MTC region. While all factors will be assessed initially, strategies for avoiding or mitigating incompatible land uses will only be developed for factors shown to be of concern in the Fort Pickett MTC JLUS Study Area.
