Seymour Johnson AFB and Dare County Range JLUS Implementation Project

The Seymour Johnson Air Force Base (AFB) and Dare County Range (DCR) Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) Implementation project implements recommendations from the 2017 Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR JLUS. These recommendations promote an orderly transition of community and military land use to ensure compatible activities and operations to benefit communities and the military, protect public health, safety, and welfare, and maintain the operational capabilities of Seymour Johnson AFB and the DCR.

The implementation project focused on developing resources, tools, processes, and partnerships that communities and the public can use to better understand compatibility impacts on and from Seymour Johnson AFB and the DCR. The following primary tasks are included in the JLUS implementation project:

  • Enhancing this Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR JLUS project website with a DCR and Surrounding Airspace Resource Management Reference Guide and the Dare County Range and Northeast North Carolina Compatibility informational brochure.
  • Providing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for communities and a Dare County Range Community Affairs Committee to educate and advocate for a collaborative approach for sustaining the missions at the DCR and maintaining the quality of life for residents.
  • Developing an online interactive Resource Asset Map (linked form this website) to assist local jurisdictions with planning initiatives that are compatible with the Seymour Johnson AFB and DCR military operations in the region.
  • Updates to the CAMA Land Use Plans for jurisdictions to adopt.
  • Zoning Overlay Districts that reflect locations where new development can prevent impacts to military aviation operations in the region.
  • Military Land Use Compatibility Checklists tailored for each jurisdiction to address specific issues related to military activities and compatible development in affected communities.
  • Enhancing partnerships with the North Carolina Sentinel Landscapes Program focusing on protecting the interests of working lands, conservation, and national defense surrounding the DCR.
