Our planners have extensive experience working with all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. A comprehensive understanding of the operational requirements of a military mission is vital to a plan’s successful development. Our experience includes planning activities related to installations, ranges, air/sea space utilization, facilities needs assessments, infrastructure and operations.

As communities develop and expand in response to growth and market demands, land use decisions can extend urban development closer to military installations and operational areas. The resulting land use conflicts, often referred to as encroachment, can have a negative impact on community safety, economic development, and the sustainability of military activities and readiness.

Matrix Design Group has unparalleled Joint Land Use experience working with the military, local jurisdictions, state and federal agencies, and Native American tribal governments.
