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.

RLUAC Welcomes New Executive Director

After nearly 15 years of service as the first executive director of RLUAC, Jim Dougherty has retired.  Mr. Dougherty devoted the majority of his career in city and regional planning to the southeastern region of North Carolina as a Chief Planner of the Fayetteville Regional Office of the NC Department of Commerce, which he retired from prior to accepting his role as executive director of RLUAC.  Mr. Dougherty's vision and leadership helped raise awareness of the importance of regional collaboartion and planning to help protect the natural environment and the military training mission.  At the August 15, 2019 quarterly meeting, Pete Campbell was introduced as the new Executive Director.  Mr. Campbell was instrumental in helping Mr. Dougherty and others to rejuvenate the regional organization in 2001, making significant contributions to the development of the 2003 Joint Land Use Study and many other regional planning initiatives.  Mr. Campbell begins his offical duties as the Executive Director on Ocotber 1, 2019.  Please click here to read the Fayetteville Observer's coverage of the story.
