** IF YOU KNOW OF ANYONE THAT SAYS THEY KNOW THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THE NSA BUILDING, THE EXACT SIZE OF THE NSA BUILDING OR THE EXACT NUMBER OF FMAILIES COMING TO AUGUSTA IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS…. THEY ARE WRONG. NO ONE KNOWS THESE NUMBERS EXACTLY AS THAT INFORMATION IS NOT RELEASABLE. MAKES YOU THINK TWICE ABOUT WHERE YOU ARE GETTING YOUR INFORMAITON? RIGHT?! I KNOW IT MADE ME THINK TWICE.
HERE ARE A FEW QUICK FACTS PERSONALLY GIVEN BY TOM HIMSELF THAT MAY NEED TO FACT CHECK. I HAVE ATTACHED A LINK TO A VIRTUAL MAGAZINE OF HIS EXACT SLIDE SHOW PRESENTED.
- Innovation center is run by Augusta University .
- ADP is growing rapidly. Ability to find a quality job has increased dramatically
- Single solider housing was dramatically improved 5 years ago. Now they live in a 1 + 1 room, even the young soldiers.
- There will be a new 700 bed facility for Fort Gordon next to the current 500 bed facility .
- In Fort Gordon there is over 60% of the units that are defending the American way of life .
- Cyber Warriors are being assigned to Augusta now for 5-7-10 years at a time.
- Fortune 500 magazine picked 7 cities could be the next Cyber Capital of the world….. Two were in Georgia – One was Atlanta and the other was Augusta. Think about that folks!!!! IF YOU REMEMBER NOTHING ELSE ABOUT THIS BLOG POST- RMEMEBER THAT!
- 20,000 people a day work on fort Gordon. 100 thousand people – 2.1 BILLION
- Because of Fort Gordon almost 2.5 jobs are needed outside of fort Gordon. Growing the economy. If Fort Gordon was a City it would be the 7th LARGEST .
- Cyber is in our credit card defense, it is in our “talking” refrigerators, its EVEYWHERE!
- 15% of the people are here . 15% are committed to come here. THE HOUSING MARKET IS A DRAW!!!!!!! What are some reasons? Lack of traffic and congestion is a HUGE draw as well. Tom personally picked the Evans market because of the school district & also be used he knew he would have a strong Resale opportunity in 5 years to get his money back out of said home. Now he is a permeant resident of Evans, Georgia!
- Estimated 3% growth until to 2025 . 4100 + personal = a 20% growth since 2012. There will be no more housing built on post.
- New wing for the NSA building. 90 million dollar build. Broke ground in Fall of 2016.
- Signal towner will come down in 2020- will be replaced with the world class cyber campuses. WOWZA!
- Fort Gordon is positioning THEMSELVES as the department of defense “PREMIER PLACE TO TRAIN.”
- Our Youth can now take cyber type classes for future job positions. The goal of these classes is to: **”Attract talent . Retain a talent . Grow Talent”**. The children HAVE to have security clearance so they need to stay on the up and up. Facebook is not a positive if your looking for a career in cyber.
**Military personal moving to Augusta has a 68% desire to want to remain here in Augusta Georgia . **
Last but not least, there will be a brand New gate, #6 going up from gate 3. 1.5 from the grove town gates it will be the main entrance . Gate #1 will no longer be the main gate.
