Army faces roadblocks on Pinon Canyon expansion

Published On: Jun 18 2013 08:17:13 AM CDT

Congress has approved a plan that would bar the U.S. Army from expanding into the prairielands of Pinon Canyon.

The U.S. House also approved a measure that would require the Army to complete an environmental impact study and receive federal money as a backup plan before it could happen.

According to the Denver Post, local residents have complained for years that the threat of an Army training expansion has depressed land values and disrupted plans for land improvement.

The measure still needs Senate approval.
