DoD Officials on Plans for Base Encroachment Prevention

May 24, 2005

When you build it, they do come, whether it's a baseball diamond or a military base. And too much development around bases can be a problem. They're protecting Beaufort's bases in a way that has Washington's attention.

Department of Defense officials have been meeting with local community and military leaders about how they've managed to keep Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort free from too much development so they can use it as a model in other parts of the country.

And while they were here, DoD officials took time out to talk with us about their plans.

After talking with local community and military leaders over the past couple of days, they say Beaufort has something a lot of military communities don't. "The thing that strikes me the most is the real partnership that exists between the Marine Corps and the county," said the department's Jan Larkin. "That's exciting to me."
