Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Letterkenny Army Depot a "good neighbor."
Study labels depot as good civilian neighbor

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A joint land-use study of Letterkenny Army Depot and
surrounding communities shows the military installation can peacefully
co-exist with its civilian neighbors if it survives the cut in this
year's Base Realignment and Closure Commission process. 

The study, done by the Chambersburg engineering firm Martin & Martin
Inc., indicates there are "nominal encroachment issues and no
unresolvable encroachment issues," said L. Michael Ross, chairman of
Opportunity '05, a group formed to support keeping the depot and its
2,400 jobs in Franklin County. 

"It truly is an instance where the installation and the community aren't
at each other's throats," Charles Sioberg of Martin & Martin said after
presenting a summary of the report to local government officials Monday.
