Abstract: In 1993 President Clinton requested that Congress provide new authority to expedite the reuse of military bases adversely affected by Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) actions. The result was a new property transfer method, called an Economic Development Conveyance (EDC), which gives greater flexibility to the Department of Defense (DoD) and affected communities to negotiate a mutually beneficial property transfer. On 2 July 1997, the City of Warren, MI, filed an EDC application for transfer of the Detroit Arsenal Tank Plant, a U.S. Army installation slated for closure under BRAC 95. The U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories was tasked by Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to (1) review the EDC application for compliance with DoD rules implementing the Federal EDC policy, (2) analyze the findings, and (3) report to the sponsor.
