— The Army will break ground Dec. 8 on a $288.5 million headquarters complex for two commands that will move to Fort Bragg under base realignment.

Forces Command and Army Reserve Command are scheduled to move from Atlanta by Sept. 15, 2011, under the Base Realignment and Closure, or BRAC, recommendations adopted three years ago.

The BRAC moves and other military growth are expected to bring 40,000 people to the 11 counties and 73 towns around Fort Bragg by 2013, members of a state task force said Thursday.
