Restoration Advisory Board
A Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) was established for NWIRP Bedford in March 1996. The RAB is composed of members of the community, local environmental group members, and state and federal officials. The RAB meets periodically, and their communications are the primary mechanism for providing information to the community. Public notices announcing RAB meetings, public meetings, public hearings, and the availability of documents are generally advertised in two local newspapers (Bedford Minuteman and Lexington Minuteman). RAB meeting minutes are available in the AR File at the link below. Use the search term “Restoration Advisory Board" to locate records relating to the RAB meetings or other public meetings. The public notices are available in the AR file at the link below. Use the search term “Public Notice” to locate the public notice records related to the RAB meetings and other activities.
