Panel votes to restructure Army reserve centers in Arkansas

A federal panel this morning voted to restructure selected Army Reserve Centers throughout Arkansas. It approved the changes in a batch of base-realignment recommendations that include 176 installations in three dozen states. Votes on broader suggestions that would benefit the Little Rock Air Force Base at Jacksonville weren't expected until Friday. In the vote today, the Base Realignment and Closure Commission agreed to recommend to President Bush changes for the reserve centers at Arkadelphia, Camden, El Dorado, Darby, Hot Springs, Jonesboro, Malvern and Pine Bluff. The Darby center and an equipment depot at Barling would be relocated to Fort Chaffee and the Pine Bluff center would be moved to the Pine Bluff Arsenal. The others include a call for new sites to be found and provide a way to accomodate Arkansas National Guard units. Gary Disnick, the Army team leader for the BRAC commission, said the changes proposed for 176 installations in Arkansas and the other states were consistent with military realignment objectives. Also due for a vote Wednesday was a realignment of the Camp Pike Reserve Complex in Little Rock - disestablishing the 90th regional readiness command and activating a sustainment brigade - and the closure of the Red River Army Depot near Texarkana.

Close and relocate U.S. Army Reserve Center, Camden, if state alters its facility. Item c. Close and relocate U.S. Army Reserve Center, El Dorado, if suitable land found. Item d.
