Fort Gordon Compatible Use and Growth Management

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).

Fort Gordon Regional Growth Management Plan

The Fort Gordon Regional Growth Management Plan (GMP) 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, Fort Gordon is anticipating 2,000 additional military personnel by 2021, in addition to the 9,000 arriving since 2012. Further population growth will be generated from service member families, contractors and other support staff, as well as indirect jobs, translating into thousands of new residents to the region.
