PPACG’s work on the Fort Carson Regional Growth Plan began in 2006 to examine the effects of the rapid increase and fluctuation of troops at the Army base. The plan was funded by the Department of Defense, Office of Economic Adjustment and through other state and local funding sources.

The plan addresses the effects of Fort Carson’s growth on a broad range of community services, including child care, health care, and housing. The plan was completed in 2013, but PPACG’s efforts to facilitate communication between Fort Carson, local governments, businesses and the community continue.

A significant outcome of the plan was the creation of the Peak Military Care Network, which links veterans and active-duty military personnel to regional services.
