U.S. Army Land Expansion Waiver Approved for Fort Carson Maneuver Site
By Mr. Paul Boyce (FORSCOM)February 14, 2007
The U.S. Army announced today that it will seek to acquire up to 418,000 acres of land at Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, Ft. Carson, Colorado. On Feb.
8, 2007, the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology &
Logistics) granted a waiver to the Major Land Acquisition Moratorium allowing the U.S. Army to purchase additional acres to satisfy an identified military-training land shortfall at Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site. As this process begins, the Army will actively seek public comment and participation to ensure all interests are heard.
This authorizes the U.S. Army to begin an Environmental Impact Statement and related study information to support expansion of Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site. After the alternatives are developed, the next step will be the preparation of the Environmental Impact Statement.
For information please call the Army Public Affairs Office, Mr. Dave Foster, (703) 697-5344."
