Due to the success of the Compatible Use Plan Study, LTADD was encouraged to apply for an additional grant through DoD’s Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation (OLDCC) to work on enacting various implementation strategies that were identified in the Plan. We were recently notified that we had received that grant and are now working to again engage our partners at Fort Knox and the communities in our region to begin this effort. The current regional growth trends and upcoming changes add obvious urgency to our work.
A sample of these implementation areas include the development of and the supported adoption of some land use policies that promote compatible use, creation of a Fort Knox market area housing study, a review of hazard mitigation and resiliency projects and policies, and a review and promotion of conservation efforts. All these are applied as they contribute to compatible use concepts and the continued support of Fort Knox’s missions.
The grant period runs from 1 August 2022 to 31 January 2024.
