First Set of Public Meetings Held!

The North Carolina Department of Commerce Rural Economic Division hosted the first public meetings for the Seymour Johnson AFB and Dare County Range Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) on Monday, November 9, 2015 at 3 pm at the City of Goldsboro City Hall Addition located at 200 North Center Street, Goldsboro, NC; Tuesday, November 11, 2015 at 3 pm at the Washington Civic Center located at 110 Gladden Street, Washington, NC; and Thursday, November 12, 2015 at 3 pm at the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge Interpretive Center located at 205 S. Ludington Drive, Columbia, NC.

During these meetings the project team was introduced; an overview of the JLUS planning process and 25 compatibility factors were provided; opportunities for public involvement discussed; and an overview of the Seymour Johnson AFB and Dare Count Range given. The public participated in a survey with results presented to the audience in real-time to gauge the understanding of Seymour Johnson AFB and Dare County Range and provide insight into potential compatibility issues. Each presentation was tailored to the region where the meeting was conducted. These meetings begin an essential dialog with the community on the JLUS and compatibility issues that will carry through the project into 2016.
