The Southeastern Connecticut Council of Governments, SUBASE New London, and the municipalities of City of Groton, Town of Groton, Ledyard, New London, Montville, and Waterford are seeking public input on the conduct of a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS). Participants at the March 29 Open House #1 weighed in on the initial list of land use compatibility issues and shared interests between the Navy and local municipalities. Meeting results, including a video, have been posted here: subasenljlus.com/get-involved/.
The public is invited to the second series of JLUS public open houses on:
Wednesday, May 31, 2017,
at either 2:00-3:30pm or 7:00-8:30pm,
at Waterford Town Hall, 15 Rope Ferry Road, Waterford.
Both meetings will include a presentation, an open house with displays, team members available for questions, and opportunities to share your thoughts and experiences. The project consultant team will present an initial list of strategies to address compatibility issues and shared interests between the Navy and local municipalities.
A Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a cooperative planning process that promotes compatibility between community development and the Navy’s missions, while minimizing impacts of the Navy’s operations on adjacent communities and ecosystems. The final product will include measures to support a healthy economy, environment, and community, while safeguarding the military mission.
Community ideas and feedback throughout the approximately year-long effort will be welcome. There will be one more public open house later in the process. See www.subasenljlus.com for more detail on the project, for information on upcoming events, and to sign up to receive project updates by email.
