Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Riverbank Ammo Plant (CA)
Army may let part of ammo plant go

RIVERBANK -- Ten acres at the Army ammunition plant on Claus Road could 
be sold to developers by the end of the year, an important first step in 
bringing new jobs and businesses to the area, city officials say.

At a meeting in Sacramento last week, Army officials agreed to consider 
transferring part of the 173-acre ammo plant out of Army hands as soon 
as possible. Ten acres on the plant's southern edge could be transferred 
before March 2010, said Mark Jones of the Army's Base Realignment and 
Closure program. City officials are hopeful that the transfer could 
happen sooner, by late this year.

That's good news for Riverbank. The sooner the plant moves out of Army 
hands, the sooner the city can usher in the plant's rebirth as a hub for 
green jobs and businesses.
