Joint Base San Antonio Joint Land Use Study

AACOG's new relation component with the U.S. Military provides regional planning capacity to perform and lead a specialty Department of Defense (DoD) Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) Grant to identify interagency coordination and communication with Military City-JBSA. Recently, the San Antonio-Alamo Region represented by AACOG has been praised and awarded a highly prominent recognition as a Great American Defense Community and the 2017 winner of the Air Education and Training Command (AETC) ALTUS trophy for Community and Military partnership excellence. AACOG is proud to introduce its JBSA Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) program. An intergovernmental mission for establishing regional planning strategies to collaborate with military mission affairs, our DoD JLUS grant goal is to achieve procedural improvements and formalize interagency agreements as it relates to land use planning efforts which impact safety, noise, lighting, water and new incompatible development.

The Regional Joint Land Use Study Implementation Strategy (RJIS) was commissioned by the City of San Antonio in order to integrate all three JLUS's recommendations and their key priorities with an overall regional impact to military influence operating areas. These Joint Land Use Studies were developed for installations that comprise Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA)-Lackland, Randolph, and Camp Bullis.

A Joint Land Use Study is necessary to ensure the future compatibility between public and private land uses in surrounding communities; and is viable to support the continuation of the Military's mission at JBSA. Furthermore, it is important to regularly revise to current conditions including encroachment evaluations of an ever-growing San Antonio-Alamo region that incorporates population, economic development, and new construction development occurring in proximity to critical mission readiness JBSA installations.
