Compatibility can be defined as the balance between community and military needs and interests. The goal of compatibility planning is to promote an environment where both entities can coexist successfully. Information obtained from the Policy Committee, Technical Committee, and the public will be analysed to identify current and potential compatibility issues. This analysis will consider the effectiveness of community planning tools for land use decisions and existing and projected development trends within the JLUS Study Area. A set of 25 compatibility factors will be considered to evaluate the range of issues that influence land use compatibility. While all factors will be initially assessed, several factors may not exist within the Youngstown ARS JLUS Study Area.
