Fort Eisenhower Compatible Use and Growth Management
Fort Eisenhower Regional Growth Management Plan Implementation Initiative
The Fort Gordon Regional Growth Management Plan Initiative (GMPI) is a cooperative planning effort conducted by communities adjacent to Fort Gordon to jointly plan for growth at the installation. According to estimates from the Department of Defense, the Installation has added 8,449 new service members since 2012 and an additional 894 are anticipated through 2024. Further population growth will be generated from service member dependents, contractors and other support staff, as well as indirect jobs, translating into thousands of new residents in the region.
In 2021-2022, the CSRA Regional Commission facilitated a cooperative planning effort by communities around Fort Gordon to plan for growth and address challenges and opportunities. Several infrastructure and public service topics were examined, with specific recommendations to accommodate growth and mitigate impacts. This effort culminated in the development of the Fort Gordon Regional Growth Management Plan (GMP), published in August 2022. The GMPI will serve as the implementation of the GMP’s recommendations.
GMPI Project Goals
- To implement priority recommendations included in the GMP in order to continue supporting Fort Gordon, including service members and their dependents’ quality of life.
- To enable and facilitate the coordination of region’s various stakeholders in managing and mitigating Installation growth impacts.
- To continually monitor progress in implementing the GMP.
To meet these goals, an Implementation Group consisting of representatives from Augusta-Richmond County, Columbia County, Aiken County, Fort Gordon, and the Alliance for Fort Gordon was established to guide the implementation of the GMP. The CSRA Regional Commission will provide staff support to the Implementation Group.

Fort Gordon Compatible Use Study Implementation
The Fort Gordon CUS (FG-CUS) Implementation is a collaborative planning effort among the Central Savannah River Area Regional Commission (CSRA-RC) — the local project sponsor — the Cities of Blythe, Hephzibah, Grovetown, and Harlem; the counties of Augusta-Richmond, Burke, Columbia, Jefferson, and McDuffie; state and federal agencies; the Department of Defense; the public and other local and regional stakeholders. The purpose of FG-CUS is to implement key recommendations from the 2019 Fort Gordon / Central Savannah River Area Joint Land Use Study to prevent encroachment, improve agency communication and determine extent of nighttime artificial illumination. This project is funded by a grant from the Department of Defense (DOD), Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation (OLDCC).
