Malmstrom AFB JLUS

What is a Joint Land Use Study?

A Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a collaborative planning effort among the military and the surrounding communities, counties, municipalities, and stakeholders that is intended to offer voluntary guidance for land use and regulations with the goal of reducing potential conflicts between a military base and surrounding development.

What is the Malmstrom Air Force Base Joint Land Use Study?

The City of Great Falls, Cascade County and Malmstrom Air Force Base (AFB) have partnered to initiate the preparation of the Malmstrom Air Force Base Joint Land Use Study. The JLUS is being funded through a grant from the Department of Defense - Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA).

Malmstrom Air Force Base is located in Cascade County just east of Great Falls, Montana. This Joint Land Use Study is being conducted to address issues associated with the potential of future land use and development encroaching on the Base and the missile complex it operates. Since it is recognized that the operation of the Base affects, and is affected by, activity far beyond its perimeter fences, creating strategies to foster a responsive land use plan and regulations for the surrounding area is of very important to balance appropriate uses, economic interests, and military readiness.
