Regional JLUS Implementation Strategy (RJIS) RJIS # RJIS Actions 1 Identify critical areas/priority properties for acquisition that support preservation of military readiness for all Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) installations through the use of Readiness and Environmental Protection Integration (REPI) funding or other Public-Public or Public-Private funding mechanisms. Bexar County secured $5 Million in Defense Economic Adjustment Assistance Grant Program (DEAAG) funding for the encroachment/land acquisition around Randolph Air Installations Compatible Use Zones (AICUZ) safety areas. Project received extension through Feb. 2018. Continually partnering with the JBSA encroachment team and P 4. Update in 2018. IP 2 Utilize capital improvement and infrastructure systems planning for stronger interagency communication/coordination on regional growth and management. Funding for Haul Route: Provides access for construction of Airman Training Complex (ATC) City of San Antonio (Co. SA) provided $450 k in funding for route construction. The funding Includes: Negotiation with landowner at Springvale Drive and Eagle Rock Drive for access to CPS Energy easement ($81 k, estimated 10 -year construction), road construction on CPS Energy easement ($69 k), and a deceleration lane on Highway 90 Frontage Road west of Springvale Drive for construction traffic ($300 k). Growdon Road traffic conflict JBSA-Lackland: Continue to identify possible funding. IP 3 Pursue legislation to authorize Texas counties limited land use authority to protect and preserve the military readiness around the state’s installations. Senate Bill (S. B) 6 authorizes a municipality to annex for full or limited purposes, under the annexation provisions applicable to that municipality, any part of the area located within 5 miles of the boundary of a military base in which an active training program is conducted. Requires that the annexation proposition be stated to allow the voters of the area to be annexed to choose between either annexation or providing the municipality with the authority to adopt or enforce an ordinance regulating the land use in the area in the manner recommended by the most recent JLUS. *C – Complete *IP – In Progress Next Step *C /IP IP 10
