Joint Land Use Study

The Malmstrom AFB Joint Land Use Study was completed in March 2012.  The JLUS process was designed to create a locally relevant plan built on consensus and support from numerous stakeholders.  To achieve this, the Malmstrom AFB JLUS process included a public outreach program that provided numerous opportunities for interested parties to contribute to the development of the study.

Stakeholders included individuals, groups, organization, and governmental entities interested in, affected by, or affecting the outcome of the Malmstrom AFB JLUS.  Involving stakeholders early on was instrumental in the identification of important issues to be addressed and resolved through the JLUS process.  Stakeholders for the Malmstrom AFB JLUS included, but were not limited to:

  • Local jurisdictions (cities and counties)
  • DoD Officials and military installation personnel
  • Local, regional, and state planning, regulatory, and land management agencies
  • The public (including residents and landowners)
  • Environmental advocacy organizations
  • Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs)
  • Other special interest groups (including local educational institutions and school districts)
