New Cannon AFB Airmen Center

Cannon Air Force Base plans new construction to handle an increase in Airmen.

The Air Force plans to build a nearly $10 million dining, recreation and services facility.

They're building it in anticipation of a growing population of airmen.

They should complete construction on the two story building by the end of the year.

Base officials estimate Cannon's population to reach between 4,400 - 5,000 by 2014.

Right now the base has a population of around 2,000.
