The City of Huntsville, in cooperation with the City of Madison; Town of Triana; Counties of Madison, Marshall, and Morgan; Redstone Arsenal; and other agencies and organizations in the region, is preparing a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) to address compatible land use planning and sustainability between Redstone Arsenal and the neighboring communities. The primary objective of the JLUS is to reduce current and potential conflicts between Redstone Arsenal and surrounding communities while accommodating new growth and economic development, sustaining economic vitality, protecting public health and safety, and sustaining the operational missions of Redstone Arsenal.
This will be the first of several public workshops held during the course of the project. This workshop will include a presentation with an overview of what a JLUS is, how the public can get involved, and how the process will provide communities information and tools to assist with future land use decisions around Redstone Arsenal. An overview of the operations that occur at Redstone Arsenal will also be presented. The meeting will conclude with an interactive audience participation exercise where attendees can give input on compatibility issues they would like to see addressed in the JLUS.
In order to develop a study and recommendations that are responsive to local needs, input from the community is essential!
