CAMP BULLIS FINDS INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO ENCROACHMENT FORESTED LAND PROTECTED ON ARMY INSTALLATION. By Jim Cannizzo, Fort Sam Houston Environmental Update (U.S. Army Environmental Center) Fall/Winter, 2010Camp Bullis, Texas, an island of mostly forested land now surrounded on three sides by urbanized areas of San Antonio, faces severe encroachment issues that could jeopardize its viability. The lesson learned at Camp Bullis is that seemingly monumental encroachment problems can be addressed through cooperative efforts and innovative solutions.
The 28,000-acre Army installation on the north side of the city is the only field training location for Fort Sam Houston (FSH). FSH is an urbanized 3,000-acre post in the heart of San Antonio that is home to Army medic training and soon to Department of Defense medic training. Camp Bullis' field training capability is a critical asset to Base Realignment and Closure 2005, which will move more than 12,000 personnel to FSH by 2011.
Until the 1990s, Camp Bullis was on the outskirts of San Antonio with few developments around it. Now, San Antonio is the seventh largest and third fastest-growing large city in the United States, and Camp Bullis is surrounded on all but its northern boundary.
