At their meeting on November 7, 2007, the Albemarle County Board of Supervisors received an update on the U.S. Army’s expanding National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) located on Route 29 in Northern Albemarle. The NGIC site, expanded in July 2006 through the federal government’s purchase of 47 acres from developer Wendell Wood, will grow to include a new facility for 1,000 employees to accommodate defense jobs relocated from the Washington, DC area. The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) estimates 650-800 jobs will be created in Charlottesville, that figure includes jobs for related defense subcontractors. The growing defense facility will be known as the Rivanna Station Military Base. The Federal Base Relocation and Closure (BRAC) program indicates that the relocation of defense jobs to Charlottesville will be completed by September 2011.
