Military Mission

Fort Lee's primary mission is training and is the headquarters for the U.S. Army Combined Arms Support Command/Sustainment Center of Excellence, the Army Quartermaster School, the Army Ordnance School, the Army Transportation School, the Army Logistics University, the Army Ordinance School, and the Defense Commissary Agency. An Army Forces Command unit and the 49th Quartermaster Group (Petroleum and Water) also are stationed at Fort Lee. The base hosts two museums - the Army Quartermaster Museum and the Army Women's Museum. As a result of BRAC 2005, Fort Lee has experienced tremendous growth from September 2008 to September 2011. The BRAC action resulted in an increase of 19,559 personnel (military/civilian/contractors) for a total of 44,167. More than $1.3 billion was spent on BRAC and military construction (MILCON) projects since 2006 to help accommodate the growth. The installation comprises 5,912 acres and is located wholly within Prince George County.

Joint Land Use Study Planning Process

The Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Installations, Housing and Partnerships) nominated Fort Lee as a candidate for the Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) program in May 2011. Due to the presence of rotary wing aircraft and the initiation of new training activities, a cooperative planning effort among the installation, Prince George County, and the neighboring communities could provide an opportunity for the local jurisdictions to adopt planning doctrine that promotes compatible development that will not adversely impact the Fort Lee military mission. The Crater Planning District Commission will serve as the JLUS project sponsor, working closely with neighboring jurisdictions, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the installation to undertake the JLUS.
