Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM) – The South Sound Military Communities Partnership (SSMCP) invites residents and businesses in the South Sound region to participate in a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) being conducted to examine issues of compatibility between JBLM and its neighboring communities. The JBLM JLUS is a strategic plan that provides specific implementation actions to ensure compatible civilian growth and development. The JLUS presents recommendations for consideration by local and state governments that promote compatible development and protect public health, safety, and welfare while also protecting the ability of the military to accomplish its vital training and operational missions currently and over the long term.
A public open house will provide opportunities for the public to be involved in this important study. Hosted in DuPont (Emergency Operations Center located in the main Fire Station), community members are encouraged to attend and comment on recommended land use compatibility strategies. Comments may also be submitted through the project website (www.jblm-jlus.com), which contains project information, including study reports and maps.
Get information and provide input at an upcoming public open house: Tuesday, October 20 (5-7 pm) DuPont Emergency Operations Center, 1700 Civic Drive, DuPont.
The JLUS advances SSMCP’s mission to foster effective communication, understanding, and mutual support around issues that transcend the specific interests of the military and civilian communities of the JBLM region.
