Ft. Benning GA and Ft. Knox, KY and Columbus, GA BRAC information
OK... What is BRAC?  Well is stands for Base Realignment and Closure and what that means in English is as it effects us here in Coumbus, GA and Phenix City AL. (we are only a few miles apart, divided by a river).
The big impact of the BRAC move to our area is the moving of Ft. Knox"s Armor group is moving to Ft. Benning, GA.  Not only will this increase the number of Military persons at Ft. Benning, but there will be a large increase in the number of Government Civilians and contractors coming as well.  Below is the lastest information I have on the increase to our area.
Military               Jobs= 4,712   Spouses= 2,733  Children= 4,386   School age= 2,771    TOTAL = 11,831
Gov Civilians       Jobs= 1,889   Spouses= 1,511  Children= 1,451   School age= 1,096    TOTAL = 4,851
Contractors        Jobs= 4,802   Spouses= 2,641  Children= 3,963   School age= 2,972   TOTAL = 11,406
Total                 Jobs= 11,403   Spouses= 6,885  Children= 9,800   School age= 6,839   TOTAL = 28,088

This growth is planned for the next several years and is to be compeleted by 2011.
As you can just guess what effect this will have not only at Ft. Benning, but also the area around Ft. Benning.  We believe this will impact about 9 counties around Ft. Benning.  This will involve housing, schools, ... more
