The Camp Bonneville advisory group will hold its first meeting at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Clark County Public Safety Complex, 505 N.W. 179th St., Ridgefield. To attend online or via telephone, go to https://clark.wa.gov/public-works/camp-bonneville-advisory-group-meeting-83023.
Clark County Public Works’ Parks and Lands division is convening the advisory group, which is comprised of local residents, to review cleanup objectives and findings of no further action on individual cleanup projects at the site. The group will have an opportunity to provide input on the sitewide cleanup action plan, once it’s completed by the state Department of Ecology. The committee will review the plan, sharing diverse resident perspectives. County staff will share the committee’s feedback and recommendations with the Clark County Council.
The advisory group will meet six times over the course of the next 12 months. Meetings will be held in a hybrid in-person/virtual format, with meeting dates and times announced at least two weeks in advance. A brief public comment portion of each meeting will provide residents with an opportunity to provide comments or ask questions about agenda items only.
Public comments will be limited to three minutes each. Meeting agendas and minutes will be posted at clark.wa.gov/public-works/camp-bonneville#cag.
The county has been working with the U.S. Army Base Realignment and Closure Division and Ecology to clean up the former military site to allow for future public use. More information about Camp Bonneville can be found at clark.wa.gov/public-works/camp-bonneville.
