The City of Newport News, James City County and Joint Base Langley-Eustis are working together on a Joint Land Use Study to identify compatible land uses and develop growth management guidelines for the area around Fort Eustis. This 13-15 month study is designed to support the long-term sustainability and operability of Fort Eustis. The study team, with input from the community, will gather and analyze data; conduct a compatibility analysis; propose recommendations; and provide a detailed implementation plan. By examining installation activities and surrounding land use and development plans, the study aims at finding a balance between military and community needs so that both can grow successfully.
