The U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Environmental Management program is hosting a Thursday morning meeting to discuss preservation plans for the East Tennessee Technology Park, the former K-25 site.
This public meeting will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the conference room of Building 2714-G, which is located across from the Federal Building in Oak Ridge. There will be an opportunity for the public to provide comments.
Representatives from the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the Tennessee State Historic Preservation Office, and other consulting parties, including the National Park Service, will be there for the discussion. These agencies will discuss the recommendations related to a memorandum of agreement issued on February 1.
â€œThis process leads to a new memorandum of agreement that will document the agreed-upon measures for commemoration of the siteâ€™s important history,â€ said David Adler, who is with DOEâ€™s Environmental Management program. This process involves coordination with a Tennessee Historic Preservation official to discuss what should be done to preserve the history of K-25.
Contact David Adler at [email protected] if you have any questions about this meeting.Â Participants must present a valid DOE badge or be a U.S. citizen with appropriate picture identification to enter the facility.
