Public Workshop #2 hosted for the Dyess AFB Joint Land Use Study

The second public workshop for the Dyess Air Force Base (AFB) Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) was hosted by the City of Abilene, in cooperation with the City of Tye and Taylor County on Monday, March 6, 2017. The workshop was held from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Tye Community Center, located at 105 Scott Street, Tye, TX 79563.

This public workshop provided an update on the JLUS project progress, presented the Dyess AFB military mission footprint, and allowed the public an opportunity to provide input on the priorities of the compatibility issues identified through this JLUS process. The issues being evaluated are the result of comments and feedback obtained from the JLUS Policy Committee and Technical Advisory Committee (made up of representatives from the jurisdictions, agencies and organizations involved in this project), stakeholder interviews, and public input provided at the first Public Workshop held on October 3, 2016. At the workshop, participants were able to learn more about existing compatibility concerns and provide input on the actions that should be considered to address them.
