The Fort Harrison – Limestone Hills Training Area JLUS Implementation Project is a collaborative effort of several entities that builds upon the recently completed Joint Land Use Study (JLUS). The JLUS identified and developed specific implementation actions to be carried out by participating communities, which will help to reduce or avoid conflicts between the military installation and the cities of Helena, Townsend, and Broadwater and Lewis & Clark Counties. This collaboration will allow Fort Harrison to continue providing substantial economic contributions to the region, and sustain its military mission. In addition, participating communities will be better able to pursue their housing, land use, transportation and economic development goals and objectives.
Lewis and Clark County is the project’s sponsor and a Coordination Committee of leadership and staff from the City of Helena, Broadwater County, Lewis and Clark County, and the Montana Army National Guard has been created to oversee the project. Initiated in February of 2016, the project will be completed by April of 2017.
Participation and feedback from the region’s residents is critical to the success of the JLUS Implementation Project. This process will draw from the input of the public, Coordination Committee, and other participating interests to develop recommendations that protect the public health and safety of both the civilian and military communities, preserve and enhance military missions, promote compatible growth and land uses, and improve regional cooperation.
