Welcome to Fort Knox CUP



What is the Fort Knox Compatible Use Plan (CUP)?
The Compatible Use Program is a federally funded program administered by the Department of Defense (DoD) and Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) to promote collaboration and cooperation among the Military, surrounding jurisdictions, community stakeholders, and states. This proactive collaborative process promotes open dialogue to encourage cooperative land use planning between Fort Knox and surrounding jurisdictions to guide future civilian growth and development to be compatible with the training and operational missions of Fort Knox. By mitigating incompatible civilian development and identifying strategies to reduce the operational impacts on adjacent lands, including environmental impacts of military operations, success can be achieved by all.
Developing the Plan
Lincoln Trail Area Development District (LTADD), a regional planning organization, is the project sponsor and coordinator for the Fort Knox CUP as the project study area intersects several counties and municipalities within its region.
The Goal
The goal of CUP is to provide a detailed dataset of existing or potential issues or policies that may create conflicts between military missions and the populations and governments of surrounding communities and the post. The study will use the gathered data to analyze these polices and issues and provide specific policy suggestions for implementation to address concerns. This creates a documented framework and procedure for identifying new issues and promoting ongoing discussions and policy modifications amongst the stakeholders.
