The Chesapeake Science and Security Corridor’s (CSSC) myReGIS application was designed to serve three states, seven counties, and countless municipalities in addressing the complex land use planning needs associated with Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) at Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG). In addition, myReGIS is a tool being used by new and existing BRAC impacted businesses and residents to identify quality of life elements such as growth areas, available services, transportation needs, education institutions, etc. Regional land use planning data featured in this application helps support the APG mission and strengthens the CSSC’s relationship with the installation, regional planners, and residents.
