Volk Field Hardwood Range Joint Land Use Study – 2011

A Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a collaborative effort between the military, local government, business, property owners, and other stakeholders. Since it was first established as a Military Reservation by the State of Wisconsin in 1888, what is now known as Volk Field has played an important role in state history, the economy of Central Wisconsin, and national security. A grant was approved by the Department of Defense in order to develop a JLUS that would address current and potential future encroachment that may threaten the mission of the Base, and as a way of fostering communication between the military and the community.
