a. Radford AAP Restoration Manager, Mr. Rob Davie:

  • Opening remarks by Mr. Rob Davie.
  • Meeting objectives: Outline what the RAB roles and responsibilities are; draft up a Mission Statement, and to establish a local charter.
  • There were no issues discussed from the previous meeting minutes.
  • The Community Co-Chair is Mr. Rick Parrish. The Government Co-Chair is Mr. Rob Davie. Mr. Jim McKenna will be the new Government Co-Chair for the next meeting.
  • Each member reviewed the roles and responsibilities. The environmental regulators attending RAB meetings will be Mr. Devlin Harris, Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Mr. Rob Thomson, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
  • Development of the RAB Mission Statement: (must use plain language and be well defined)

"The Radford Army Ammunition Plant RAB mission is to establish and maintain a forum with citizens and community organizations as well as local, state, and federal agencies. The focus of the forum is the exchange of environmental assessment and restoration information in an open, balanced and interactive dialogue. The function of the RAB is to make informed recommendations to the Army and environmental agencies for remedial activities."

  • Mr. Davie will polish up the RAB Mission Statement and mail out with the meeting minutes as a draft. At the next RAB meeting, the Mission Statement will be ratified and finalized.


  • Meeting Frequency: Bi-monthly (third Thursday starting 15 October; 17 December, etc.)
  • LTC Lopez requested RAB members to be aware of the sensitivity of the restoration information and handle it accordingly.
  • Attendance Requirement: Expectation that members attend all meetings (missing three consecutive meetings may result in removal from that RAB).
  • Meeting Location: Radford Army Ammunition Plant, Building 220, Main Conference Room.
  • Addition of Members: A simple majority will add members—maximum of 15 (excluding state, federal agencies, Alliant and Army).
  • Replacement: Responsibility of retiring member to nominate a replacement.
  • Length of Service: At the end of a two-year term, members may decide to extend for an additional term.
  • Replacement of Co-Chair: Elected by RAB for a two-year term.
  • Dispute Resolution Methods: All voices will be heard and the Co-Chairs will be responsible for ensuring balanced input.
  • Document Review Procedures: Sixty day review time frame; documents will be delivered by mail or emailed to each RAB member.
  • (Before the next meeting, the Site Management Plan will be mailed to each RAB member for review. This is a good reference document for members to read; plan shows much pertinent data.)
  • Two attendees were voted on as additional members. They are Mr. Roy E. Saville and Mr. David Dobkins.


A tour of the Radford Army Ammunition Plant is scheduled for 9 September, 1998 (5:00 p.m. 7:30 p.m.). This tour, however, will not include the Dublin Plant. A tour of that facility will be accomplished sometime in October. Mr. Davie will send an email to attendees to confirm the tour date.
