NATIONAL GUARD CENTER
Military, political leaders gather to open National Guard Center at Bluegrass Station

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, February 1, 2014 4:33 PM EST
LEXINGTON, Ky.


Political leaders joined military officials in opening a new National Guard facility in Lexington.

Kentucky Adjutant General Edward Tonini praised elected officials for helping make the opening of the Guard's Consequence Management Support Center possible.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the new facility at Bluegrass Station will employ 66 people and provide logistical support to 111 specialized National Guard stations around the country.

A former Army installation, Bluegrass Station has evolved into an industrial park for military contractors. About 2,800 people work at the facility for aerospace and defense companies.

Tonini said Friday at the gathering that McConnell helped negotiate with federal agencies to allow for repurposing portions of Bluegrass Station. Federal deed restrictions had limited the lands to public recreation use only.
