Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio

Trumball County is working together with Youngstown ARS to examine impact of civilian growth on the military mission at the Air Reserve Base.

Trumbull County serves as the project sponsor for the Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) of the communities surrounding Youngstown Air Reserve Station (ARS), with a projected completion date of December 2018.  The City of Warren, Townships of Vienna and Fowler, and State of Ohio are also participating in the study.  The JLUS is a community-driven planning process designed to promote compatible civilian development in support of military readiness and defense capabilities at Youngstown ARS; protect public health, safety, general welfare, and quality of life; promote the economic viability of the region; and foster continued communication between Youngstown ARS and the surrounding communities to address compatibility issues.

Youngstown ARS is located in Vienna Township, Trumbull County, 11 miles north of Youngstown and 10 miles east of Warren, in northeast Ohio. Youngstown ARS carries out its mission on property that is part of the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport. 

The Trumball County JLUS will examine the impact of growth and development issues that include a planned residential development northeast of the military installation and increased commercial and industrial development to the south of the base, both of which could have adverse impacts upon military operations. 

In addition to the JLUS, the State of Ohio, the Youngstown ARS, and the adjacent communities (Vienna Township and Trumbull County) are working together on the development of a Joint Deployment Processing Center to be located in the southwest part of the airport.  The creation of a Joint Deployment Processing Center may raise additional Air Force concerns regarding adjacent community development.  The Trumball JLUS can help guide nearby residential, commercial and industrial development, and assist the State of Ohio, adjacent communities, and the Air Force as they collectively plan for future development that will not impair the operational utility of the installation. 

The following deliverables are anticipated from the study effort:

  • Public Engagement Plan
  • JLUS Final Report
  • Implementation Strategy Plan
