Oak Ridge Reservation Land Use Planning Process
Oak Ridge Reservation Land Use Planning Process

A land use planning process involving extensive stakeholder input has been initiated. A set of possible land use scenarios is being developed for parts of the Oak Ridge Reservation which may in the future no longer be needed for mission purposes. The land use scenarios will help guide future DOE decisions. Public input is a key component for the scenario development.

Public Input

Public input is being obtained through:
   Focus Group for Land Use Planning
   Public Meetings

Public Communications

Public communication will be through:
   Research Park Notes
A newsletter about research, natural resources, land use, and other activities on the Oak Ridge National
Environmental Research Park. It includes updates and information about the Land Use Planning Process.
