Restricted Area at Blount Island Command and Marine Corps Support Facility-Blount Island, Jacksonville, FL
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is amending the existing regulations for a restricted area at Blount Island Command, located on Marine Corps Support FacilityBlount Island, Jacksonville, Florida. Blount Island Command is responsible for managing the United States Marine Corps Prepositioning Programs. Due to the importance of this mission, the current restricted area in this section must be extended due to Department of Defense (DoD) directives that require the implementation of specified force protection measures by all DoD components. This amendment to the existing regulation is necessary to protect U.S government personnel, equipment, and facilities from potential terrorist attack by providing stand-off corridors encompassing the waters immediately contiguous to Marine Corps Support FacilityBlount Island.
