Monroe County, Fort McCoy, and the Mississippi River Regional Planning Commission (MRRPC)
have teamed up in securing funding from the Department of Defense to undertake a Joint Land
Use Study (JLUS) involving Fort McCoy and its surrounding communities. This study will involve
developing strategies and projects designed to improve compatibility between the Fort and
surrounding land owners, communities, government agencies, businesses, and institutions.

When the JLUS is completed, it will include recommendations that demonstrate that the Fort and
surrounding communities are interested in improving compatibility. Many other communities around
the nation with major military installations have undertaken Joint Land Use Studies. This study and
the actions resulting from it may help influence a positive result for Fort McCoy in the next Base
Realignment and Closing (BRAC) process, but is no guarantee that Fort McCoy, with its $1.4
billion annual impact on the regional economy, will continue.

The first public meeting explaining the JLUS process was held on September 27th 2011 at the
Rolling Hills Auditorium, 14345 County Hwy B, Sparta, WI. Three more meetings including a public
information meeting will be held in 2010 and 2011. More information on the Fort McCoy JLUS can
be viewed from the links below, including times and locations of future meetings. If you have any
questions please contact Peter Fletcher, Transportation Planner at 608.785.9396 or you can e-
