Annual Report to Governor & General Assembly due Dec. 31.

Final Report to Governor & General Assembly due Dec. 31, 2011.

Effective June 1, 2006, the Maryland Military Installation Council was authorized (Chapter 634, Acts of 2006; Code 1957, Art. 83A, sec. 5-1710.1).

The Council continues the work of the Maryland Military Installation Strategic Planning Council, which submitted an interim report to the Governor and General Assembly in December 2003. That council ensured that Maryland was prepared for the Efficient Facilities Initiative of the U.S. Department of Defense, scheduled for 2005. The Initiative was a review process which resulted in closures of military bases across the United States. In May 2005, the U.S. Department of Defense published its recommendations for base closures and realignment of functions. The federal Base Realignment and Closure Commission reviewed those recommendations, reported in September 2005, and they became law in November, 2005. Implementation of the recommendations must be completed by 2011. As the recommendations are implemented, the State of Maryland is gaining approximately 15,000 jobs.

The Maryland Military Installation Council is to identify what public infrastructure and community support is needed for the development and expansion of the State's military installations; and what the potential impact of that development and expansion will be on local communities. The Council also will research how other jurisdictions are coping with increased development around military installations, and review State policies in order to best support the mission of the military installations and maximize economic benefits to local communities.

Authorization for the Council ends December 31, 2011 (Chapter 634, Acts of 2006; Code 1957, Art. 83A, sec. 5-1710.1).
