Proposed Plans

Community Involvement Plan

The USACE has prepared this Community Relations Plan (CRP) to identify issues of community concern about the site, establish public involvement goals, and provide a strategy for giving the public accurate and timely information about the cleanup of the former Raritan Arsenal. This CRP is based on community input obtained through interviews and questionnaires in spring 2012.
