(UNDATED) - You are invited to a public forum regarding land use planning around Naval Support Activity Crane.

The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA), in cooperation with RADIUS Indiana and the Counties of Daviess, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Sullivan along with agencies and organizations in the region, is preparing a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) to address compatibility planning with Naval Support Activity (NSA) Crane and the Lake Glendora Test Facility (LGTF).

The JLUS will explore the impact of community development activities and opportunities for both NSA Crane and the LGTF and will make recommendations to promote land use compatibility and collaboration.

The goal of the JLUS is to reduce current and potential compatibility issues between NSA Crane and the LGTF as well as the surrounding jurisdictions while accommodating new growth and economic development, protecting public health and safety and sustaining the operational missions of NSA Crane and the LGTF.

The JLUS will assess 25 compatibility factors, identify existing or potential issues and recommend strategies to address these.

Compatibility factors include, but are not limited to:

  • Coordination/Communication
  • Infrastructure Extensions
  • Land Use and the Lake Glendora Test Facility.
  • Noise
  • Safety Zones
  • Roadway Capacity

In order to develop a plan that is responsive to local needs, input from the community is essential. The public is encouraged to attend the forum in your area to learn more about this planning study and provide input on the issues to be addressed.
