Regional Collaboration and Leadership

The Regional Land Use Advisory Commission (RLUAC) is a non-profit 501(C)3 membership based organization located in the Sandhills of North Carolina consisting of twenty-one units of local government: eight counties and thirteen municipalities.  The 25 year old organization was the first regional group established in the country to coordinate land use decisions between the military and the local governments.  Today, the primary mission of RLUAC is to balance the following three key objectives through facilitating regional planning and development reviews, communication and coordination:

  • Protect the Civilian Population from negative military impacts;
  • Protect the Long Leaf Pine Ecosystem from destruction;and
  • Protect the Military Training Mission from incompatible development.
