Who Will Guide the Development of the JLUS?
Two committees (comprising the City of Abilene, City of Tye, Taylor County, military, and other stakeholders), together with the public, will guide the development of the JLUS. Each group has an important role to play. These committees are:
Policy Committee (PC). This committee contains elected officials representing jurisdictions in the JLUS Study Area, federal and state agency officials, and military leadership. The PC is responsible for direction of the JLUS and monitoring the implementation and adoption of policies and strategies. Throughout the JLUS process, the PC will work with the appointed JLUS staff members representing the multiple local organizations including the City of Abilene, City of Tye, Taylor County, and Dyess AFB officials.
Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). This committee contains representatives from local jurisdictions, agencies, and other stakeholders with expertise in one or more of the 25 compatibility factors that will be assessed throughout the JLUS process. The TAC identifies and addresses technical issues, provides feedback on report development, and assists in the development and evaluation of implementation strategies.
