Colorado Democratic Senator Ken Salazar says he's sent a letter to Defense Secretary Robert Gates asking the Army to help create an economic development plan for southeastern Colorado communities, which would be affected by a potential expansion of Fort Carson's Pinon Canyon training ground.
Salazar offered few specifics during a conference call with reporters, other than to suggest the Army station a brigade as part of a "Fort Carson annex" in the expansion area, perhaps near Trinidad.
He said he wanted a response from Gates within 30 days.
The Army wants to expand the maneuver site from 368 square miles to more than 1,000 square miles as Fort Carson grows.
Salazar says he hopes the Pentagon will provide more details about what officials want to do in southeastern Colorado.
