Current Public Involvement

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has prepared a Public Involvement Plan (PIP) as an update to the Community Involvement Plan (CIP) originally prepared in April 2004. The PIP identifies tasks, provides direction, and assigns responsibilities to inform and promote effective, long-term communication among the community; the USACE; federal, state, and local agencies; and elected officials regarding investigations and remedial activities at the former Atlas D Missile Site 4. Community members were interviewed during preparation of the PIP to identify and document changes in the community’s concerns since the CIP was prepared in 2004. The PIP incorporates new Site 4 information, lists the community’s primary concerns, and focuses future community activities that will be conducted as project progresses on addressing community concerns. The USACE follows U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s guidelines for CIPs in preparing its PIPs.
