In October 1992, the U.S. Army issued a Reuse Options Plan for JPG. The study outlines numerous reuse options and the projected cost for cleanup. Goals in the plan include the productive reuse of JPG in accordance with sound environmental principles. To date, three parcels have been deemed suitable for reuse.
One parcel is the area north of the firing line. Because the 51,000 acres known
as the Northern Firing Range Area contain UXO, the Army plans to retain
ownership of this area. However, other Government organizations, such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service , and the Indiana
Air National Guard have entered into Memorandums of Agreement with the Army to
access the area and help ensure a balanced use of the land and maintenance of
the natural resources and
The most economically valuable area is the approximate 4,000 acre area south of
Firing Line Road. This parcel is known as the Cantonment Area.
A third parcel, a 1.19-acre area located south of the JPG property boundaries,
contains a pump building and two water wells.
