Second Public Meetings Held

Lauderdale County, in cooperation with the East Central Planning and Development District, hosted the second series of public meetings for the Naval Air Station Meridian (NAS Meridian) including Navy Outlying Landing Field Joe Williams (NOLF Joe Williams) Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) on February 13th and 14th, respectively.

The meeting on February 13th was located in Kemper County at the Barney B. Brown Senior Citizen Center at 5 pm. The meeting on February 14th was located in Lauderdale County at the East Mississippi Electric Power Association Auditorium at 7 pm.

The meetings included a formal presentation that provided a JLUS project overview, and an interactive exercise that was designed to obtain feedback from the public about the importance of the compatibility issues that have been identified to-date. The attendees provided input about the importance of each compatibility issue by identifying the level of importance by placing a sticky dot in the appropriate box on wall-size posters.

Second Round of Public Meetings Scheduled

Lauderdale County, in cooperation with the East Central Planning and Development District (ECPDD), City of Meridian, Town of Marion, Kemper County, and other agencies and organizations in the region, is preparing a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) to address land use and compatibility planning around NAS Meridian and Navy Outlying Landing Field Joe Williams (NOLF Joe Williams). The goal of the JLUS is to protect the viability of current and future missions at NAS Meridian while accommodating growth, sustaining the economic health of the region, and protecting public health and safety.
