Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENCROACHMENT: Robins Air Force Base (CA) fenceline properties
Robins makes progress on encroachment issue

Macon Telegraph (GA)
June 8, 2010

Local officials have been struggling to buy homes that are too close to Robins Air Force Base, but some of that effort's obstacles are clearing up.

The encroaching properties could threaten the future of the base, and the U.S. military has said efforts to clear away too-close houses helps "mission growth" at the base.

The challenges in solving the encroachment issue are diverse:

* Federal money is available but can only be used to reimburse local money used to buy the properties.

* Lately, Bibb and Houston counties had failed to agree on how much money they would pay for encroachment. Current budget proposals now call for each to contribute $100,000 a year for five years, or $1 million total. The worst encroachment problems are in south Bibb County.
