The Department of Defense's Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) program helps communities and adjacent military installations to plan for compatible development. In 2005, Fort Wainwright and Eielson Air Force Base both nominated the FNSB for a study. The FNSB JLUS was completed in July 2006 and includes 57 recommended actions to promote compatibility.
Both military bases and the borough continue work on implementation of the recommended actions.
In December 2015, the Assembly adopted the Military Noise Overlay. This advisory noise overlay is intended to inform any interested party that this area is likely to experience noise related to military arms and flight activity.
