Joint Land Use Studies (JLUS) are community-driven, cooperative, strategic planning processes among localities, states, and military installations. The goal of each JLUS is to encourage local governments to work closely with the military installations to implement measures that prevent the introduction of incompatible civilian development that may impair the continued operational utility of the military installation, and to preserve and protect the public health, safety, and welfare of those living near an active military installation.

The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission often coordinates between localities and state and federal agencies, including the military, including acting as a sponsor for JLUS projects. For information about specific JLUS projects in the Hampton Roads region, please use the links below.
