Air Force officials said the secretary of defense’s Base Realignment and Closure commission recommendations are not final.

“The president’s BRAC commission will review the list for conformity with the Defense Department’s force structure plan and published selection criteria,” said Gerald F. “Fred” Pease Jr., deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for basing and infrastructure analysis. “The commission will report its findings and conclusions to the president by September.”

Local communities will still be able to address their concerns to the BRAC commission at one of several planned regional meetings, he said. People wanting information on the meetings can contact the BRAC commission at (703) 699-2950 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. EDT Mondays through Fridays.

Additionally, communities can provide inputs to the commission by writing to BRAC commission, 2521 South Clark Street, Suite 600, Arlington, Va., 22202. Commissioners expect to have a Web page for online submissions after May 16. (Courtesy of Air Combat Command News Service)
