Compatible Use

Maintaining the military’s ability to carry out their missions is vital to the preservation of national security. However, population growth and urban development near military installations, ranges, or on lands beneath designated military training routes or special use airspace, can impact military test, training, and operations. OEA’s Compatible Use Program can provide an opportunity for continued community development and economic growth, and to maintain the military’s ability to test and train. Open communication, comprehensive community planning, and collaboration can help both parties meet their goals.
