Sumter-Shaw Joint Land Use Study

The Sumter-Shaw Air Force Base (AFB) Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a cooperative planning effort among Shaw AFB, Poinsett Electronic Combat Range (ECR), the City of Sumter, Sumter County, and other affected stakeholders in the community. The JLUS will identify means of promoting responsible land use, accommodating compatible growth and economic development, protecting public safety and quality of life, and sustaining the mission of the Air Force in the region for the long-term.
