Program Manager Dale Polston says the site will have a training building, maintenance shop, storage building and parking area. Polston says the new center also will have office space, a library and learning center, assembly space, weapons simulation and physical fitness space. Eight Army Reserve units will use the site. Construction could begin this summer.
