Public Workshop #2 Held March 2013

Residents throughout the NAS PAX JLUS Study Area had an opportunity to provide their input on the compatibility issues and their priorities at the second set of public workshops held March 26 and 27, 2014 throughout the region.

Please check back next week for the results of these workshops.

Public Workshop #1 Results

The first set of public workshops were held throughout the region September 30 through October 3, 2013. The purpose of these workshops was to introduce and explain the JLUS process to the communities, provide an overview of the compatibility factors that the JLUS process will assess, and obtain public input into the identification of preliminary compatibility issues.

The interactive workshops allowed attendees to respond to survey questions and to participate in group exercises facilitated by the project team in order to gain input from the community about potential land use planning issues concerning NAS PAX and the region. Meeting attendees received a project overview and compatibility factors fact sheet. Meetings were held throughout the region in four different locations. Workshop materials and the combined results of survey questions can be accessed below:
