A housing survey issued to soldiers and their families living on post at Fort Carson showed a satisfaction rate of 64 percent, according to a July 25 statement from the Army installation.
“We’re taking action to earn back the trust of our housing residents, and we will hold ourselves accountable to provide a high-quality standard of living for all our Soldiers and Families,” said Brig. Gen. Joseph Ryan, who was quoted in the statement.
Issues with privately managed military housing came into the national spotlight in February, when the Military Family Advisory Network
released a survey showing that out of nearly 17,000 respondents, more than half reported a “negative” or “very negative” experience living on military installations.
Since then, Fort Carson has held a town hall to address residents’ concerns and worked with management company Balfour Beatty to improve living conditions.
