The Fayetteville Observer reports that big changes are coming to military housing at Fort Bragg, with Corvias announcing a $100 million initiative to renovate and build hundreds of homes on base.
More from the Observer:
More than 280 homes on Fort Bragg will be renovated and 95 new homes will be built, Fort Bragg housing officials said.
Col. Phillip Sounia, the post’s garrison commander, talked about housing issues during a town hall meeting at Fort Bragg’s Iron Mike Conference Center. The meeting was shown on the post’s Facebook page.
Workers will demolish 160 homes on post.
The construction, renovation and demolition of the homes represent about a $100 million investment by Corvias, the company that manages housing property on Fort Bragg, Sounia said.
…Heather Fuller, the operations director for Corvias, said that since February the company has cleaned ducts in about 3,000 homes and power washed about 2,000 homes. She said Corvias has hired 52 more employees to work on issues at Fort Bragg.
Sounia said Fort Bragg and Corvias are partners. He said the relationship is improving.
“They have dedicated a tremendous amount of resources … in creating a better environment for our families,” he said.
