Military Affairs

It is impossible to think about Columbus without acknowledging the physical presence and economic impact of Ft. Benning. For generations, our two communities have shared a common border and a collective sense of community.

With the seeds of the Base Reallignment And Closure (BRAC) consolidation, our region is poised to participate in one of the single greatest periods of economic growth and development this region has ever seen. The economic impact will be great, and the assimilation of so many new neighbors will present infrastucture and financial challenges, challenges that are the fuel for great communities to become even greater. There is a new future for our community and you can play a part in it.

With 28,000 new residents, 11,000 new jobs and $3.5 billion dollars in capital investment, the opportunities and challenges are tremendous. Your Chamber has been, and is, right in the middle of most of them. If Ft. Benning has an issue, then our Chamber has an issue.
