Public Meetings

As workshop dates and locations are set, information will be posted on this page.

Public input is a major component in the success of this project. Your input is critical in this planning process and the success of this project. The Public Participation section of this website will be updated regularly to include information about the committees working on this project and guide you to upcoming public workshops.

Three public workshops will be conducted at key points throughout this project. Each meeting is anticipated to begin with an informal open house session. During the open house component, Project Team members will be available to talk with the public in a one-on-one, informal atmosphere. Following each open house session, a formal presentation and/or meeting activity will be conducted.

Public Workshop #1: This workshop will explain the purpose and function of the JLUS, explain the nature of military operations at NSA Mechanicsburg, introduce project participants, describe the JLUS approach, and discuss the goals of the JLUS. The format of this workshop will include a presentation to the public followed by an interactive working session where attendees will be invited and encouraged to share their input on potential JLUS issues. A user-friendly JLUS Project Overview Fact Sheet will be distributed at this workshop to provide the public with the information they need to successfully complete a compatibility issues identification exercise. Attendees will work in groups around large scale study area maps to complete a compatibility issues worksheet as well as engage in small group discussions with the JLUS team. Participants will also be able to provide input through interactive audience response systems that allow for immediate response viewing and tracking.

Public Workshop #2: The purpose of this workshop will be to solicit input on resolution of conflicts and impacts. The workshop will be an informal gathering of small groups that discuss ideas on how best to resolve community conflicts.

Public Workshop #3: The third public workshop will present the Draft JLUS to the public for their review. The public review process and details on how to submit comments will be provided. The public and interested stakeholders will be encouraged to provide feedback either during the meeting via comment cards or submission of comments via the project website and the Hampden Township Project Manager.
