The FHRC in cooperation with Fort Riley, local jurisdictions, state and federal agencies and organizations, is preparing a JLUS to address the primary military operations conducted within the region. The JLUS is intended to strengthen the relationship between the military installation and the civilian community by examining the issues associated with the growth and development of the communities in proximity to fort operations. The final report will propose recommendations that will provide for these communities to continue to thrive within the Flint Hills Region while maintaining the mission of the Fort.
