Restoration Advisory Board (RAB)
The purpose of the RAB is to promote community awareness and to obtain constructive community review and comment on environmental restoration actions to facilitate the overall cleanup of Installation Restoration (IR) Program sites. The RAB is designed to disseminate information about the IR Program and to ensure opinions about environmental restoration reflect the diverse interests within the community. The RAB mission is to establish a forum with the community, regulators and NAS Key West for the input and exchange of information in an open and interactive dialogue concerning the installation’s environmental restoration program. NAS Key West's RAB was established in 1995. Title 32 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Section 202 allows for the adjournment of a RAB when there is no longer documented sufficient, sustained community interest. The recorded minutes of the RAB meeting on July 23, 2019 documents the RAB’s concurrence with adjournment based on the lack of sufficient and sustained community interest. On September 18, 2019, the Commanding Officer of NASKW formalized the adjournment of the NASKW RAB in a Memorandum for the administrative record.
The Navy, Navy contractors and the state’s Florida Department of Environmental Protection meet regularly to review and comment on Navy environmental restoration activities at NASKW. These meetings will continue beyond the adjournment of the RAB.
Should you want any information concerning NASKW’s environmental restoration actions, please contact: the Installation Restoration Program Manager, (305) 797-4461, or the Public Affairs Officer (305) 293-2027, Naval Air Station Key West Commanding Officer Code PR74 P.O.
