The Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a cooperative planning initiative between the Naval Air Station Fort Worth, Joint Reserve Base (NAS Fort Worth, JRB) and the surrounding cities. The goal of the JLUS is to promote compatible community growth that supports military training and operational missions.
The inter-jurisdictional partnership will result in the identification of actions that can be taken jointly by the community and installation to promote
compatible development and address current and future encroachment.


2016-2017 Joint Land Use Study
Joining  Forces logo

Joining Forces seeks to promote compatible growth and to insulate regional military installations from encroachments that could threaten the installations’ ability to conduct their missions. The results of the study will include recommended actions for the communities to adopt such as zoning overlays, obstruction ordinances, comprehensive plan language and communication strategies. The communities surrounding the Naval Air Station Fort Worth, Joint Reserve Base (NAS Fort Worth, JRB) in western Tarrant County participated in a JLUS 10 years ago. (See more information about the 2008 JLUS below.) The current study, known as Joining Forces: Aligning Community & Military Missions will update this JLUS and include three additional installations, two ancillary training areas and flight areas that support operations at NAS Fort Worth, JRB.
