COMMUNITY RELATIONS PLAN

Community Relations Plan - September 2021

Status Update

The safety of the community is a priority for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Formerly Used Defense Sites Program. Due to the likelihood of inclement weather from Sub Tropical Storm Nicole, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is cancelling the drop-in meeting for the former Naval Air Station Banana River Off-Base Disposal Area scheduled for November 9, 2022 at the Pelican Beach Club House.

Our work developing a scientifically defensible sampling plan that will ensure teams collect sufficient data to be able to characterize the potential environmental impacts attributable to the Navy’s activities continues. While the deadline to receive signed rights-of-entry has passed, we encourage all property owners who received and have not yet signed the form to do so as soon as possible.  If someone signs the form after we start fieldwork, we cannot guarantee that property will be investigated.

We will announce future opportunities to meet with the project team at a later date.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at FUDS.Florida@usace.army.mil or 800.710.5184.
