Monmouth County has received a $206,000 federal grant from the Department of Defense to prepare a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) for Naval Weapons Station Earle.
A cooperative land use planning effort between affected local government entities and the military installation, the project looks to create compatible development measures to keep the base operational, while also looking out for the surrounding public’s health, safety, and welfare. When land use decisions impair the effectiveness of a military base, the utility of the installation and its mission can be compromised. Mission constraints can lead to base closure. Monmouth County will contribute $32,500 in staff time and materials to the study.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County News | Tags: Colts Neck, Deputy Freeholder Director Serena DiMaso, Freeholder Lillian Burry, Howell, JLUS, Joint Land Use Study, Middletown, Monmouth County News, Naval Weapons Station Earle, NWS Earle, Tinton Falls, Wall | Comments Off on Planning for NWS Earle
