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
