Homeowners Bordering Robins AFB Stuck in Encroachment Limbo

An effort to protect Robins Air Force Base in central Georgia from encroachment is running low on funds. Only seven of 125 homes in high-noise areas or safety buffers surrounding the installation’s airfield have been purchased, leaving interested homeowners in limbo — they can’t sell to the regional authority trying to remove the homes and they can’t sell their residences on the open market. Local officials would need about $7 million to purchase the remaining homes, but this year will have no more than $700,000, including federal funds, according to macon.com.
