Travis Air Force Base, California

Solano County and neighboring communities are examining processes for continued growth while supporting the mission at Travis AFB.

Solano County serves as the project sponsor and grantee for the 24-month Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) for the region surrounding Travis Air Force Base (AFB).  Solano County; Cities of Fairfield, Vacaville, and Suisun City; and other affected stakeholders, are participating in the study.  The JLUS planning process benefits both the military installation and its supporting communities by identifying existing and future land use conflicts, and where mitigation strategies, ordinances, and future planning may counter possible civilian development that may impair continued military operations.

The JLUS is a community-driven planning process among the communities that surround Travis AFB designed to promote compatible civilian development in support of military readiness and defense capabilities at the installation; protect public health, safety, general welfare, and quality of life; promote the economic viability of the communities; and foster continued communication among Travis AFB and the surrounding communities to address compatibility issues.

Travis AFB is comprised of 6,495 acres located in Solano County, California.  An earlier Land Use Compatibility Plan was completed in 2002, however, new challenges to the installation's military operations have arisen due to recent conditions and circumstances in the surrounding communities, warranting a new JLUS.  A few of the recent compatibility challenges are urban development due to Solano County’s accelerated growth rate, and alternative energy development issues.  

The following deliverables are anticipated from the study effort:

  • Draft and Final JLUS Plan that will include a recommended land use compatibility plan for region.
  • Spectrum Encroachment White Paper and Model Policies and/or Regulations.
  • Study Area Maps.
  • Public Involvement Strategy.
  • JLUS Website and Project Overview.
