Urban development around many installations threatens the ability to provide realistic military training to the soldiers of the U.S. Army and adequate testing for future weapon systems. Regional planning can alter the patterns of future development around installations. The Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory ERDC-CERL has developed the military Landuse Evolution Assessment Model mLEAM suite of software tools to allow for the rapid and inexpensive testing of the impact of alternative regional plans on the future training and testing opportunities of nearby installations. This report describes the mLEAM approach and documents the application of mLEAM to the counties surrounding Fort Benning, GA to provide Fort Benning with options to proactively mitigate conflicts between the Army and the growing civilian community surrounding the installation.
