Quality Of Life and Off-Base Meetings, Conventions, Hotels/Motels and Special Activities Committee

Overview

Community and social needs for serving the arriving military and their families will be evaluated by this working group committee. It will be determined to what extent the military facilities can meet those needs and what services will need to be provided by communities in the study area. Issues and services to be studied will include but not be limited to: libraries, cultural resources and facilities for arts and entertainment, parks and recreation facilities, open space, and water access.

This task will also include an inventory and assessment of hotel and motel beds in the study area along with space for meetings, conventions and special activities (e.g., performances, trade shows, etc.). The anticipated population growth of the study area due to the influx of military personnel will necessitate additional hotel and motel beds, meeting space and special activity space (performances, gatherings, events, etc.).
