Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson will host a Public Release Open House Nov. 20, 2019 to share the results of the Air Installations Compatible Use Zones study.

The Department of Defense’s Air Installations Compatible Use Zones (AICUZ) program balances the needs of military operations with community concerns by focusing on people, safety and compatible development. AICUZ studies analyze the effects of military noise (sound), aircraft accident potential and land development on present and future neighbors of U.S. Air Force bases. This is the first AICUZ study conducted at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson incorporating the Training Area range noise as well as the Elmendorf and Bryant Army Air Field aircraft operations.

The Open House will be held in the Community Room at the Mountain View Neighborhood Library, 120 Bragaw St., in Anchorage from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. It will include five poster information stations along with subject matter experts from the Air Force Civil Engineer Center and JBER who will be available to discuss study topics and answer questions. Copies of the AICUZ study will be available for review and a link to access the study electronically will be available.

The public is invited to learn about the AICUZ study and its recommendations as well as about JBER’s training areas and airfield operations, which provide full-spectrum twenty-first century joint and multinational training. They also allow JBER to execute agile combat support to enable and sustain lethality.
