A workshop on Compatible Land Use Planning was held at the HRPDC on February 29, 2008. The workshop focused on opportunities for linking regional open space planning and the buffering of military facilities to protect them from encroachment by new development. The agenda included a presentation on the Department of Defense Readiness and Environmental Protection Initiative, Green Infrastructure in Hampton Roads, the North Carolina Onslow Bight Conservation Forum, the Hampton Roads Joint Land Use Study and the pending Langley Air Force Base Joint Land Use Study. Participants in the Workshop included representatives from the various military facilities in Hampton Roads, local government planning department staff and local government parks and recreation staff. The workshop provided an excellent opportunity for the sharing of strategies to simultaneously protect critical natural resources and maintain the viability of the military facilities in Hampton Roads.
