About BRAC
  • In September 2005, Virginia Governor Mark Warner created the Northern Virginia Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Coordinators to address recommendations issued a month earlier by the 2005 BRAC Commission and enacted by Congress on November 9, 2005
  • The BRAC Commission called for:
    • The movement of more than 22,000 jobs out of leased office space in Alexandria, Arlington, and the Bailey's Crossroads area of Fairfax County
    • The addition of approximately 21,000 personnel to the US Army Garrison at Fort Belvoir in Fairfax County, and up to 5,000 personnel to the US Marine Corps Base at Quantico in Prince William and Stafford Counties
  • The Coordinators expected that the new BRAC would cause significant shifts in missions and employment at and among military installations in the area, including significant job gains, job losses and shifts, plus profound impacts on the economy, transportation system, and educational system*
