USAG-Miami Area Development Plan

USAG-Miami currently functions primarily as an administration campus with no housing on the cantonment. This presents significant financial and “esprit de corps” issues for assigned personnel and, more importantly, presents a mission sustainment problem should vehicle access from remote housing areas to the cantonment be compromised in the event of a natural or manmade disaster.

Driven by evolving force structure, changing mission needs, and rising costs, Department of Defense (DoD) planners are rethinking and evolving their approach to the management of installations and provision of member and dependent services. This Area Development Plan (ADP) illustrates how U.S. Army Garrison (USAG) Miami can use a different approach to development to become more resilient in a changing environment. Using available Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) land, the needed housing units and community support functions can be built within walking distance of the existing cantonment.
