  17. 17. • There is a long history of coordination and collaboration between Fort Hood and local governments to address issues of mutual importance and concern. • Encroachment from external land use and development patterns do not currently impact or limit military operations at Fort Hood. • Local governments in the region, particularly cities, have the tools available to facilitate compatible growth, but fewer options are available in ETJs and unincorporated areas due to current statutory limits. STUDY FINDINGS
  18. 18. • Trends identified in the study indicate that the region is poised to experience significant growth well into the future (as will Central Texas as a whole). • Civilian encroachment into areas that experience impacts from military training has the potential to limit or impact certain training activities in the future if compatible growth policies are not implemented. • Local governments in the region are committed to implementing the appropriate policies and programs to support Fort Hood’s operational, training and testing missions and facilitate compatible growth. STUDY FINDINGS (CONTINUED)
  19. 19. • Total of 34 recommendations in four categories. • Regional coordination in support of compatible growth: – Establish an organization to promote compatible growth. – Formalize the coordination process (MOU / MOA). • Planning for compatible growth: – Encourage communities to incorporate JLUS recommendations into local plans and studies. – Encourage collaboration between Fort Hood and local governments as plans are developed. STUDY RECOMMENDATIONS
  20. 20. ENCROACHMENT AWARENESS AREA
  21. 21. • Regulatory support of compatible growth strategies: – Develop a common regulatory “toolkit” for consideration by local governments. – Encourage adoption of regulatory tools by local governments as appropriate. – Collaborate with TX military communities to expand available compatible growth tools. • Supplemental strategies: – Address broader issues that are related to, but outside of the scope of, the Joint Land Use Study. STUDY RECOMMENDATIONS (CONTINUED)
  22. 22. NEXT STEPS • Final study will be submitted to OEA – Report can be reviewed at: www.FortHood-JLUS.org • Central Texas COG is submitting an application for implementation funding. • JLUS implementation projects to begin in early 2017.
