Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission.
Notice; Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission—Cancellation of Open Meeting (Salt Lake City, UT).
Notice is hereby given that the previously announced open meeting of a delegation of the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission scheduled for June 6, 2005 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Salt Lake City, Utah, has been cancelled. After extensive coordination with the various Federal, state and local officials concerned, the Commission determined that it was not possible to hold a meaningful public discussion on the date scheduled because Congressional delegations and community representatives had not been afforded adequate opportunity to analyze the data used by the Department of Defense (DoD) to formulate the base closure and realignment recommendations due to delays by DoD in releasing that data in an unclassified form. The Utah and Idaho Congressional delegations have been offered the opportunity to participate in the regional hearing currently scheduled in Portland, Oregon on June 17, 2005.
The delay of this notice resulted from unanticipated delays by DoD in the release of the data used by DoD to formulate the base closure and realignment recommendations in an unclassified form and the short time-frame established by statute for the operations of the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission. The Commission requests that the public consult the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission Web site, http://www.brac.gov, for updates.
