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 JLUS projects in the Hampton Roads region, please use the link below.

HRPDC staff is facilitating a Military Installation Resilience Review funded by a U.S. Department of Defense Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation grant for Navy installations located in the Cities of Norfolk and Virginia Beach. The MIR Review will be a cooperative, strategic planning process among the HRPDC, Norfolk, Virginia Beach, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the four participating Navy installations. The goal of the MIR Review is to facilitate the identification of threats to installation operations from natural and manmade hazards, determine risks from those hazards, develop recommendations for strategies to address those risks, and develop a plan for implementing those recommendations.
