Public notice of membership solicitation for Restoration Advisory Board

The Department of Defense recognizes the importance of stakeholder participation in the Installation Restoration Program Process.  Therefore, Fort Irwin is soliciting interest in establishing a Restoration Advisory Board to improve public participation and involve the community in the restoration decision-making process.

The RAB is intended to include community  members, who reflect the diverse interests of the local community.  The RAB will be asked to review and comment on plans and activities relating to the ongoing environmental studies and restoration activities at Fort Irwin.  Members will have the opportunity to provide input on activities that will accelerate the restoration. Members will also be expected to serve as a voluntary liaison between the RAB and community members, and be available to meet with community members and/or groups.  The RAB meetings will be open to the public.

Applications will be reviewed and approved by a selection panel comprised of representatives of Fort Irwin, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Toxic Substances and Barstow representatives, as appropriate. To qualify, interested parties must be local residents of the area(s) impacted/affected by the Fort Irwin Restoration Program.  The RAB members will be expected to serve a one- to two-year term and regularly attend RAB meetings.

For more information or to request a RAB membership application form, contact Justine Dishart, Chief Environmental Division, or Mary Hastings, Environmental Compliance Manager, at 602 5th Street, Fort Irwin, 92310 or (760) 380-5044.
