COLUMBUS — Lowndes County will hire a consultant to make sure maps defining land use of property around Columbus Air Force Base are up to date.
The board of supervisor will accept proposals from planners through Nov. 29.
The Commercial Dispatch reports that the joint land use study was completed earlier this year. The study was commissioned to evaluate the area and provide information to help CAFB and communities coexist.
Military communities across the country had undertaken similar studies. Dozens such land use studies have been done across the country since 1985, according to the Department of Defense.
The DOD says noise — such as from helicopters, jets or firing ranges — seems to be the biggest problem when development gets too close to military installations.
