Matrix is currently conducting a community-driven, cooperative, strategic Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) process for the Redstone Arsenal (RSA), the surrounding local jurisdictions, and the State of Alabama to promote community development that is compatible with military training, testing, and operational missions, and to seek ways to reduce operational impacts on adjacent lands. In this particular JLUS, special attention is being paid to airspace and land restrictions, operational noise, urban growth, spectrum encroachment, endangered species and critical habitat, alternative energy, other environmental issues and cultural resources, and several other factors.

The Matrix team of community planners and military experts is working with the City of Huntsville, surrounding communities and the RSA to improve the management of civilian encroachment through a thorough assessment of land use and potential growth areas, an analysis of existing incompatible land uses around the installation, and an assessment of the noise contours around the installation and their impact on future development.  The resulting JLUS will assist surrounding communities in making informed decisions regarding compatibility and will provide recommendations and strategies to promote compatible land use planning in the communities around Redstone Arsenal.
