LOCAL REUSE AUTHORITIES RATE RABS The Base Reuse Consortium (sponsored by the International City/County Management Association) recently surveyed 32 local reuse authorities (LRAs) across the U.S., asking about their experience in the military base redevelopment process. The questions touched several issues. I present here, from the March/April, 1998 BASE REUSE CONSORTIUM BULLETIN, only those responses relating to restoration advisory boards. While the results appear to show continuing tension between RABs and LRAs, there seem to be a wide range of relationships. Lenny Siegel If there is a Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) for your base, please rank the following: a. The relationship between the LRA and RAB b. The RAB's relationship with the milirary c. The RAB's effectiveness excellent good fair poor very poor a. 16% 21% 42% 21% 0% b. 23% 41% 32% 4% 0% c. 4% 20% 38% 38% 0% * The military allows 96% of respondents to participate in RAB meetings. * 23% of respondents feel that the military puts more time and energy into its relationship with the RAB than it does with the LRA. When LRAs were asked, "Briefly describe when the RAB is most valuable to you," common answers were: * As a public watchdog for cleanup actions * As a community sounding board * Can't recall any instances When LRAs were asked, "Briefly describe when the RAB is least valuable to you," common answers were: * When there are attempts by members to overextend the RAB's stated purpose and process to the domain of the LRA * When it does not question BCT environmental decisions Lenny Siegel Director, Center for Public Environmental Oversight (AKA SFSU CAREER/PRO) c/o PSC, 222B View St., Mountain View, CA 94041 Voice: 650/961-8918 or 650/969-1545 Fax: 650/968-1126 email@example.com
