Sep 23, 2019 Richmond Register – ‘Leave a legacy’: Officials look forward at economic development post de-mil

As Madison County and the two cities move toward closing the pilot plant at the Blue Grass Army Depot, there is a heightened concern about what to do at the end of the day with all the workers, infrastructure and future of the site after demilitarization is no longer in 2023.

“I just wanted to point out the significant impact economically that the transition from the chemical weapons operation will have on the community, both from BGAD standpoint of employees and the taxpayers, and so on, that are going to be affected by our community once those weapons are gone,” Craig Williams, co-chair of the Kentucky Chemical Demilitarization Citizens’ Advisory Commission and Chemical Destruction Community Advisory Board (CDCAB), said.
