Osceola County Joint Land Use Study (JLUS)
Osceola County participated in the initial Avon Park Air Force Range ("The Range") Joint Land Use Study (August 2010 JLUS), which was funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, and prepared by the Central Florida Regional Planning Council (CFRPC). It contained several recommendations intended to guide compatibility between the Range and adjacent local governments. After the CFRPC printed the August 2010 JLUS, Osceola County began evaluating different implementation approaches that would ensure compatibility between the strategic mission of the base, public safety, and the economic vitality associated with the base’s operations, while also respecting private property rights and not being unduly restrictive on those rights. In order to accomplish this goal in a manner that would be more specific to and appropriate for Osceola County, the August 2010 JLUS was evaluated, the data and analysis contained therein was utilized, and then this document was created, the "Osceola County Joint Land Use Study" (JLUS 2012). This Osceola County JLUS 2012 was created through collaborative efforts between the public, the APAFR, and Osceola County staff.
