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.
Take our Community Questionnaire and tell us your experiences (positive and negative) living, working, and/or traveling near the following military installations:
- Norfolk Naval Shipyard and Norfolk Naval Shipyard associated properties including St. Juliens Creek Annex, South Gate Annex, Scott Center Annex, the Village at New Gosport, and Stanley Court
- Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads – Portsmouth Annex (Naval Medical Center Portsmouth)
- Naval Station Norfolk - Navy Supply Systems Command Fleet Logistics Center Norfolk, Craney Island Fuel Depot
This study will help identify incompatibilities, facilities, and systems of mutual interest to the military installations and the Cities of Portsmouth and Chesapeake and will assess the impacts from incompatible land uses, traffic, congestion, flooding, and storm surge to those critical facilities and systems.
The Policy Committee provides oversight and general direction for the study. Its members include representatives from the participating localities, HRPDC, U.S. Navy, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The Technical Committee advises the Policy Committee and works with the HRPDC staff and consultant team to provide data, technical input, and review of work products. The Technical Committee is comprised of staff representatives from the participating local governments, U.S. Navy, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, HRPDC, HRTPO, and state agencies.
The first round of public meetings will be held November 13 and 14.
