Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENCROACHMENT: Ft. Bragg (NC) and farms

Fort Bragg wants healthy farms surrounding it. The open spaces of farms and undeveloped forests are compatible with the military mission of the U.S. Army at Fort Bragg.

Grace Lawrence, project director for a Working Lands Protection Plan for the Base Realignment and Closure Regional Task Force, Wednesday night told local landowners about efforts to develop a plan for the 11-county region around Fort Bragg which would work to strengthen farming operations.

She indicated the plan could increase benefits to farmers through their receiving grants at more favorable rates and providing goods to operations at Fort Bragg.
