SECOND SET OF PUBLIC WORKSHOPS HELD FOR THE KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE JOINT LAND USE STUDY

The Gulf Regional Planning Commission and the City of Biloxi hosted the second Public Workshop for the Keesler Air Force Base (AFB) Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, at the D’Iberville City Hall, 10383 Automall Parkway in D’Iberville, MS, and Thursday, April 20, 2017, in conjunction with the City of Biloxi Planning Commission meeting at the City of Biloxi Development Building, 676 Martin Luther King Jr., Blvd. in Biloxi, MS.

At the public workshops, an update on the JLUS project was given, the Keesler AFB military mission footprint was reviewed, and attendees participated in an active exercise to identify the importance of each compatibility issue by placing dots next to issues on wall mounted sheets. The issues identified to date reflected input received from the Policy Committee, Advisory Committee, Technical Committee, stakeholder interviews, and public input from the first set of public workshops.

The public participated in a survey with results presented to the audience in real-time to gauge attendees’ understanding of Keesler AFB and to provide insight into potential compatibility issues.
