Abstract: Abstract: The Army is at a critical crossroad in maintaining the ability to train and exercise weapons capability. To maintain capabilities and readiness, the Army must take an immediate, professional, and local approach to influencing land use planning and management around installations. The issue of sustaining the military land base results from encroachment of adjacent land development. Encroachment recently came to the forefront of sustaining base issues as a result of a Department of Defense (DoD) Senior Readiness Oversight Council (SROC) initiative. In 2000 the SROC tasked the Defense Test and Training Steering Group (DTTSG) to examine encroachment issues. Both the series of Encroachment Action Plans developed for the SROC and a 1999 DoD Sustainable Planning report identify tools, including the Air Installation Compatible Use Zone (AICUZ) and the Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) programs, that can assist in dealing with encroachment. While the time is optimal for planners to engage communities and regional governing bodies on land use controls, the key to opening these and other opportunities requires a local, dedicated staff trained in community planning and conversant in the requirements of the Army mission.
