In October 2015, PPACG was awarded a grant from the Department of Defense to conduct a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS). This study examines impacts of existing and future land uses and missions of five local military installations: Air Force Academy, Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base (including Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station), and Schriever Air Force Base. The study area includes El Paso, Fremont, Pueblo, and Teller Counties, and is a community-driven, cooperative, strategic planning process among the five installations, the local governments and communities within the study area, and other local, state, and federal stakeholders.
The goal of the study is to identify shared community interests and recommended strategies and actions for supporting partnerships between the military and communities.
The Pikes Peak region’s 16 local governments join together in PPACG to collaborate on issues that cross political boundaries and to reach solutions that benefit the entire region. PPACG’s primary focus is regional planning in transportation, aging issues, military, and air and water quality.
