A Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a cooperative planning effort between local governments and military installations. Working with the County of Monmouth, NJ, a team from the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy worked with Maser Consulting, P.A, HR&A Advisors, and AECOM to help develop climate resilience analyses and recommendations for the communities surrounding Naval Weapons Station (NWS) Earle. In addition to being the first JLUS to consider climate resilience, the project recommendations also encourage the municipalities to work collaboratively with the base to plan for compatible development and maintain resilient transportation infrastructure that will protect the sustainability of the surrounding communities. You can find out more, and download the full report, from the Monmouth County project website.
