"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed this Community Involvement Plan (CIP) based predominantly upon input gathered through interviews with Town of Franklin (Franklin) officials and residents, along with other stakeholders interested in the BJAT, LLC. Superfund1 Site (Site). EPA’s goals for community involvement at the Site are:
- To provide the public with accurate, timely, accessible, and understandable information about the project as it moves forward;
- To provide opportunities for the public to become actively involved, especially when decisions about the cleanup are being made;
- To enlist the support and involvement of local officials and community leaders; and
- To encourage, respect and fully consider community input as the project moves forward.
EPA will achieve these goals through various means, including published documents, meetings, presentations, and community conversations. These activities will be based on the community’s needs, as informed by those with whom EPA met while preparing this plan, as well as all legal requirements.
The CIP is a living document and, as necessary and appropriate, it will be updated with community input. If you are interested in suggesting changes to this plan or have questions about it, please contact:
