The Pine Bluff Arsenal Compatible Use Study (CUS) is a cooperative planning effort between Jefferson County, the City of White Hall, the City of Pine Bluff, Pine Bluff Arsenal, state and federal agencies, and other affected stakeholders that addresses compatible land use and communication around Pine Bluff Arsenal. The Pine Bluff Arsenal CUS is funded by a grant from the Department of Defense (DoD) Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) and contributions by the CUS sponsor, the City of White Hall. The CUS effort can directly benefit both the military and surrounding region by:
The objectives of the CUS program are:
Bring together community and military representatives to discuss compatibility issues in an open forum that considers both community and military perspectives and needs.
Encourage cooperative land use and resource planning among the military and surrounding communities to ensure compatible community growth while reducing military operational impacts on lands within the CUS Study Area.
Provide a set of mutually supported tools and procedures from which local jurisdictions, agencies, the military, and other stakeholders can implement appropriate recommendations that are developed during the CUS.
