AIKEN COUNTY S.C. (WRDW) -- It’s no longer a secret Army Cyber Command is coming to Fort Gordon in Augusta and with it comes a whole lot of people.

At least 1,500 people are expected to move to the CSRA over the next several years and while many may remain in Georgia, some are still expected to move into Aiken County as well.

“There's going to be a fair chunk coming to Aiken County,” Steve Dubay, a realtor in North Augusta, said. ”We're already feeling this.”

It’s not just the housing market that may see a big boom once the ball gets rolling with these moves.

“Those that have been in the service for a while and that have families,” Dubay said. “They're looking for a family environment, their kids are safe and the school system is a top priority.”

Dubay said one of the reasons that he has already had prospective home-buyers contact his office is because of what the school system has to offer.

“Your roads, your schools, your expansions they're looking at this already,” Dubay said. “We’ve been to the meetings and we know we're geared up for it.”

Cyber Command is expected to be fully installed by the end of 2016 or early 2017.
