Possible changes for Camp Casey discussed at town hall meeting
CAMP CASEY, South Korea — Possible changes at Camp Casey were announced at a town hall meeting Tuesday.
An analysis is being conducted that could lead to a new chain restaurant on the base, garrison commander Lt. Col. Donald Meisler said at the meeting.
The garrison will try to bring something like the Chili’s restaurant at Osan Air Base to the Camp Casey enclave, Meisler said. The base may get a Starbucks coffee shop, too, he said.
The base also is considering a shuttle bus for off-post residents. However, legal hurdles remain because they would be using government transportation for personal travel, Meisler said. Legal officials are determining how the garrison could get a waiver, he said.
A covered area for smokers near the Camp Casey post exchange also will be considered, Meisler said.
Camp Casey was scheduled to close in 2008, but that won’t occur until at least 2012, officials have said.
