FOR IMMEDIATE MEDIA RELEASE: October 8, 2014

Public Open House on Joint Land Use Study Public Draft for NAS Patuxent River

The Tri-County Council of Southern Maryland, in partnership with Calvert County, Caroline County, Charles
County, Dorchester County, St. Mary’s County, Northumberland County, St. Mary’s County, Somerset
County, Talbot County, Westmoreland County, Wicomico County, and participating communities within
these jurisdictions is preparing a Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) to address compatibility planning around
Naval Air Station Patuxent River (NAS PAX). The primary objective of the JLUS is to reduce potential
conflicts between NAS PAX and surrounding areas while accommodating new growth and economic
development, sustaining economic vitality, protecting public health and safety, and sustaining the
operational missions of the installation.

The public is invited to attend Public Open Houses to review, discuss, and comment on the Public Draft of
the JLUS Report with the JLUS development team. Two previous public workshops were conducted for the
JLUS that provided the public with an overview of the process and solicited input that was incorporated into
the JLUS. The Public Draft documentation will be available on the JLUS website, www.paxjlus.com on
October 22, 2014, for review.

Public Open Houses will be held in two different locations for your convenience:

Western Area Public Open House
