Ft Drum Housing Privatization of On-Post Military


The military transitioned from government-owned and managed housing to privately managed housing through partnerships with well-known, professional companies to improve the quality of housing and services provided. The Residential Communities Initiative was created to improve the quality of housing and services, eliminate substandard housing, build additional homes to meet demand and sustain existing housing. At Fort Drum, Lendlease and the Department of the Army created a limited liability corporation called Fort Drum Mountain Community Homes (Mountain Community Homes) to renovate and maintain pre-existing residences and construct new homes on Fort Drum to meet the growing demands of the 10th Mountain Division (LI). In addition to maintaining residential communities once managed by the government, Mountain Community Homes tends to daily management of the property. Established in 2004, Mountain Community Homes provides housing services for all incoming Soldiers, excluding those who require barracks. Single Soldiers Sergeant (E-5) and below are provided barracks accommodations through their assigned military units.
