With the federal base realignment and closure anticipated in 2019-20 and the constant threat of budget cuts, officials are making the case for maintaining and boosting Fort Knox’s economic impact.
Bowling Green company Scotty’s Contracting and Stone joined the effort by donating $75,000 to the Knox Regional Development Alliance’s Campaign Operations Committee. KRDA is a nonprofit alliance between the private and public sectors with the goal of raising $2.5 million to boost Fort Knox and the region’s economy, a news release said.
Private and public sector leaders in Hardin, Meade, LaRue, Bullitt, Jefferson and Warren counties launched the $2.5 million capital campaign. The campaign’s goals are to advocate new missions and retaining existing missions at Fort Knox and attracting and retaining defense-related business.
