RFP DUE DATE: June 25, 2019
The City of White Hall, Arkansas, is seeking proposals from qualified firms to prepare a Compatible Use Study for Pine Bluff Arsenal (PBA), including the City of Pine Bluff and Jefferson County, to address the encroachment and compatibility issues facing PBA today. The Department of Defense Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) provides grants to State and local governments to conduct a Compatible Use Study to support the long-term sustainability and operability of the military installation complex.
Interested firms must demonstrate knowledge and experience in community planning, development and land use issues, fiscal impact analysis, economic development, environmental permitting, regional air quality attainment, natural resources, infrastructure, noise management, communication and coordination collaboration, and military installation management and operations. The terms ‘Compatible Use Study’ and ‘Joint Land Use Study’ are synonymous.
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
- The City of White Hall is developing a Compatible Use Study to undertake a comprehensive examination of Pine Bluff Arsenal and the surrounding community for the purpose of ensuring continued military mission effectiveness, promoting compatible civilian development patterns, and mitigating any environmental issues.
- The City of White Hall recognizes the importance of addressing the compatibility issues presented in the Purpose of the Grant Application section in order to sustain PBA’s mission and interests, as well as the public health, safety and welfare of the surrounding civilians and associated land uses, and proposes to facilitate this by ensuring maximum compatibility between these somewhat competing interests is achieved through a cooperative and inclusive planning process. Potential encroachment issues will be proactively addressed, with otherwise resultant land use compatibility problems averted.
