Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) Program
In 1999 the Department of Defense’s Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) approached LCOG about undertaking a new type of project called a JLUS.
- A Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a community-driven, cooperative, strategic planning process among Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort and Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island; Beaufort County, the City of Beaufort and the Town of Port Royal; the Lowcountry Council of Governments; the State of South Carolina. The purpose is to:
1) promote community development that is compatible with the military training, testing, and operational missions; and
2) seek ways to reduce operational impacts on adjacent lands.
- The JLUS planning process is intended to increase public awareness of the military missions and the contribution of the military to the Regional economy.
- The JLUS planning process is intended to protect and preserve military readiness and defense capabilities while supporting continued Regional economic development.
