Title: Collaborative Land Use Planning For Military Installations and Communities


1
Collaborative Land Use Planning For Military
Installations and Communities
  • National Guard Bureau
  • Environmental Community Outreach Course
  • June 6th-8th 2005 Savannah
  • Joseph Schilling (jms33_at_vt.edu)
  • Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech

2

www.mi.vt.edu
  • Mission
  • Policy and applied research on the key forces
    shaping metropolitan growth and development
  • Major Initiatives
  • The New Metropolis
  • Fair Growth
  • Green Regions
  • Smart Governance
  • World Cities

3
Todays Game Plan
  • Share my preliminary observations
  • Focus on land use powers and processes
  • Stress the pivotal roles of state and local
    governments
  • Highlight strategies and tools for collaborating
    on land use planning and development decision
    making

4
Observations
  • Historic placement of military bases
  • Multiple stakeholders competing for regional
    natural resources (air, land, water)
  • Sprawl is the common threat
  • Battlegroundregional growth policies and local
    land development processes

5
Military/Local PerspectivesEncroachment is a
two-way street
  • Training and testing missions impinged by
    development
  • Cities within cities
  • Bases have been autonomous and independent
  • Inconsistent history of cooperation
  • Leadership and staff turnover
  • Impacts of future missions and weapon systems

6
Why is Encroachment Important?
  • Protect public safety and minimize public
    nuisances
  • Impacts on land use policies, plans, and private
    property rights
  • Maintain qualify of life
  • Enhance the regional/local economy
  • Base closure and realignment

7
Principles of Collaboration
  • Recognize the common interestsbase vitality and
    regional quality of life
  • Create processes that align interests and
    facilitate common understanding
  • Build partnerships among all levels of
    government/NGOsanchored by state and local
    governments

8
Simple Partnering Strategies
  • Educate locals on base mission and future
    planning/needs
  • Recognize the local land use and political
    dynamics
  • Establish base-community councils including
    staff/planners
  • Working groups among the regional stakeholders
  • MOUs to enhance collaboration

9
Local Land Use and Development Dynamics
  • Highly charged political climate
  • Citizen and community groups vs. developers and
    land owners
  • City/county managers, planning directors, and
    staff implement the land use plans
  • Fragmentation and fiscalization of local land use
    decision making
  • Local governments require legal/political support
    to regulate development

  • Conditional Use Permits
  • Building permits

13
Managers and Decision makers of the Local
Development Process
  • Planning and Building Depts.
  • Zoning Administration and Appeals Boards
  • Planning Commissions
  • Special Commissions (e.g. historic preservation)
  • City Councils and County Boards

14

15
State Strategies for Military Installations
  • Compatible land use legislation Arizona,
    California, Washington, etc.
  • Advisory role for military in local land use
    decision-making processes
  • Impact assessment legislation
  • Areas of critical state concern

16
DoDs Joint Land Use Study Planning Tool (JLUS)
  • Administered by Office of Economic Adjustment
    (OEA)
  • Based on military AICUZ and RAICUZ
  • Requires Installation commander approval
  • Matching local funds
  • State APA Chapter Award Winners
  • North Carolina Ft. Bragg/Pope
  • Florida NAS Whitting Field

17
Local Land Use Strategies
  • Research regional growth dynamics
  • Adapt general plan to include the base as a
    sphere of influence on future growth (Fairfield
    CA.)
  • Modify zoning codes to implement new plans
    (Aurora CO., Beaufort, SC)
  • Allocate additional resources (staff and
    training) to ensure implementation and
    enforcement of plans and ordinances

18
Buffer Acquisition and Land Conservation
Strategies
  • Encroachment Partnering FY 2003 Defense
    Authorization Act
  • DoD Partnerships with Conservation organizations
    TNC, AFT, TPL, CF, LTA.
  • Negotiations and technical issues

19
Conclusion
  • Wide array of strategies and tools
  • Strong interest within DoD and the services to
    collaborate and partner
  • Take along translator or a translation guide
  • DoD could drive regional growth policies towards
    Smart Growth
