Jackie Lowe, Chair of the Chamber Board of Directors for 2013 suggest three ideas the public could stress in making comments:
- The Department of Defense and the Department of the Army have made a significant investment in Fort Benning since BRAC 2005. Reducing personnel at Fort Benning would squander this investment.
- Our community has also made significant investments in transportation and education with more to come.
- These personnel cuts, noted in the Department of Army Programmatic Environmental Assessment, will have a devastating impact on our region and, according to the report itself, will have a disproportionate impact on low-income families.
Public comments on the Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Army 2020 Force Restructuring may be submitted by email or mail to:
