s we start the second decade o the 21st century, our installationsare acing tremendous challenges. We need energy-eective solutionsthat will sustain our installations oruture generations. From the Energy Independence and Security Act o 2007 toExecutive Order 13514,
Federal Leadershipin Sustainable Energy and Economic Performance 
, recent policies have directed usto integrate energy-eective considerationsin the planning and development o ourinstallations. This challenge is tough or ourinstallations. While we need to embracethe tenets o sustainable development, we are aced with the challenge o meeting immediate, rapidly changingmission requirements. Our programmingcommunity has zeroed in on helping usmeet the short-range program with anaggressive investment strategy that resultsin a ocus on DD 1391 developmentand, ultimately, design and construction.However, the rapid pace has not allowed usto look beyond the programming horizonto assess the impact o these actions onpreserving and sustaining the long-termmilitary capabilities o our installations.Patterns o sprawl and auto-dependentsolutions can quickly consume our limitedland. We need to use a new method o planning and development o installations— a recipe that employs the tenets o sustainable master planning that canprovide a ramework or installationdevelopment.Putting long-term sustainable planninginto practice can be a challenge. However,there can be a recipe or success thatincludes the ollowing key ingredients:leadership, standards, competency andculture.
Leadership
One o the major responsibilities o thegarrison commander is to champion themaster planning process. To championplanning, the garrison commander mustguide the process with a long-term,comprehensive vision or development thatully engages all installation stakeholders.Garrison commanders have acceptedthis challenge and are leading therevitalization o their planning eorts.Particularly good examples are ound atFort Lewis, Wash., Fort Hunter Liggett,Cali., Fort Hood, Texas, Fort Sill, Okla.,Natick Army Laboratories, Mass., andthe U.S. Army Corps o Engineers’ ColdRegions Research and EngineeringLaboratory in Hanover, N.H., wheregarrison commanders have been eective inchampioning master planning, leading theprocess and ensuring that their installationsare developed in sustainable and energy-eective ways that meet immediate missionrequirements, create great communities andpreserve long-term military capabilities.
Standards
A planning process works when theprocess leads to holistic solutions. I am very excited by the work o our Oice o the Assistant Chie o Sta or InstallationManagement, Installation ManagementCommand and USACE planning team. They are now inalizing the regulation that will govern installation master planning.One o the key components o theupdate is the establishment o 10 planningtenets that will guide all planning onArmy installations. These tenets are theoundation or successul planning nomatter what location. In addition, theOice o the Secretary o Deense is working on updating the Master PlanningUniied Facility Code. This UFC willembrace many o the practices thatthe Army is adopting into a tri-serviceapproach. We are all grateul to Deputy UnderSecretary o Deense or Installations andthe Environment Dr. Dorothy Robyn orher leadership in this realm. The UFC isprojected to be completed by August.
Competency 
Successul planning requires skills inplanning, comprehensive problem solvingand a collaborative environment. Theprocess is synergistic, creates solutionsthat meet mission requirements andincorporates our planning tenets.Our planning team has championedan award-winning proessional educationprogram that has vastly improved theawareness and understanding o planning. The program is the only one in theederal sector accredited by the AmericanPlanning Association. Further, our garrisoncommanders, as part o the GarrisonPre-Command Course, receive valuabletraining on master planning. Through installation outreach andormal classroom training, we havecreated a broad suite o options to increaseplanning competency.
(Editor’s note: See article about available training on page 41.)
I encourage investment in thesetraining opportunities by you and yourorganizations.
Culture
 The toughest challenge or us inemploying the tenets o great planningis changing our building culture. We
