Matrix produced this Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) as a cooperative planning effort between Camp Roberts, the City of El Paso de Robles, and San Luis Obispo and Monterey counties.  Camp Roberts hosts heavy and light maneuver training exercises by the California National Guard, Army, Army Reserve, Marine Corps, and Air Force units, as well as law enforcement agencies and other state and federal agencies.  The facility occupies over 42,000 acres of land adjacent to the City of San Miguel.   

With significant growth occurring in the community of San Miguel, Camp Roberts must continually coordinate with nearby jurisdictions in order to mitigate potential conflict between military operations and civilian development.  The goal of the JLUS is to ensure that activities at Camp Roberts and in the surrounding civilian areas are compatible with one another while taking into account the needs of the community and the military mission. 

As part of the Camp Roberts JLUS, Matrix conducted a public involvement process, performed mapping and analysis, suggested changes to regulatory framework, and developed a compatibility analysis. The JLUS provides mutually beneficial planning strategies for both the military and the local community.
