Portsmouth-Chesapeake Joint Land Use Study

Project Overview

The Hampton Roads Region – Portsmouth and Chesapeake Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a joint effort between Portsmouth, Chesapeake, the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission, and several U.S. Navy installations in South Hampton Roads. Navy facilities in Portsmouth and Chesapeake face several impacts from the surrounding communities, including transportation impacts (such as congestion, existing and planned capital improvements, facility access, gate security, and rail operations), stormwater management, waterway management, land use conflicts, and residential, commercial, and industrial encroachment impacts. Nuisance and storm surge flooding can have major impacts on Navy operations by obstructing access and damaging local infrastructure on which military facilities rely. This study will help identify specific conditions and develop mutually beneficial recommendations to address these issues.
