The North Central Texas Council of Governments is collaborating with military and community leaders for Joining Forces, a regional joint land-use study that will identify and recommend land-use strategies that support continued military capabilities.

During a joint land-use study, the cities and counties surrounding the military installation work with the installation to plan and carry out specific actions that will promote compatible community and economic growth.

The public is invited to an open house from 6-8 p.m. July 10 at Westworth Village City Hall, 311 Burton Hill Road in Westworth Village. A brief presentation on Joining Forces begins at 6:15 p.m.

In addition to Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base, the Joining Forces study will examine Redmond Taylor Army Heliport, Fort Wolters Training Center, Col. Stone Army Reserve Center, Camp Maxey Training Center, Eagle Mountain Lake Training Site and the Brownwood and Brady Military Operating Areas.

Joining Forces seeks to promote compatible growth and to insulate regional military installations from encroachments that could threaten the installations’ ability to conduct their missions.

The results of the study will include recommended actions for the communities to adopt, including:

  • Zoning overlays.
  • Obstruction ordinances.
  • Comprehensive plan language.
  • Communication strategies.
