A Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) does not currently exist for Naval Station Great Lakes; however, if in the future, it is necessary to form a RAB, the Navy will hold meetings of the RAB as warranted to discuss key environmental activities or as general update meetings.
A CIP was developed in January 2010 to identify community concerns and information needs that may arise during remedial activities at Naval Station Great Lakes in Lake County, Illinois. The community involvement activities outlined in the CIP are utilized by the Navy to make sure that residents are continuously informed and provided opportunities to be involved. A copy of the CIP is available in the Administrative Record. The Navy will review and/or modify the CIP whenever necessary to make sure it is effective in keeping both local officials and the general public informed about the Naval Station Great Lakes sites.
Public notices announcing public meetings, public hearings, and the availability of documents are generally advertised in three local newspapers (Pioneer Press, Lake County News Sun, and the Great Lakes Bulletin).
