The Department of Defense (DoD) REPI program helps protect working lands and open spaces to buffer military training areas and airspace to avoid land use conflicts, preserve natural and ecological resources, support economic development, and prevent encroachment threats. REPI project transactions, typically in the form of restrictive use or conservation easements, allow the Navy to leverage funding with eligible entities such as land trusts or conservation organizations. REPI is a tool used to build partnerships and work with willing sellers to preserve critical areas near military installations, training areas, and airspace. The DoD has designated the Boardman Geographical Area of Concern (GAOC) that includes NWSTF Boardman, special use airspace, low-level military training routes, and radar line-of-sight. 2 pp.
