JBSA-Lackland JLUS Implementation Light Pollution Assessment
Located in Bexar County, JBSA-Lackland provides basic military training as well as technical training to prepare airmen for their initial roles in the Air Force. Municipal growth has created light management issues that affect the Military Working Dog Campus as well as the Training Annex where the Basic Expeditionary Airman Skills Training (BEAST) and the Lackland Small Arms Firing Range are located. Without careful study and planning, continued growth in these areas will only worsen an already challenging situation. The 2011 JBSA-L Joint Land Use Study identified the need for a light study. In accordance with this recommendation, Bexar County retained Matrix to prepare a comprehensive Ambient Light Pollution Assessment Report that assesses night training sensitivity areas and activities, provides existing ambient lighting measurements in order to create a baseline for future evaluations, and proposes changes to local municipal lighting requirements to reduce impacts on training while protecting public safety.
