The purpose of the Community Relations Plan (CRP) is to facilitate effective communications and timely information exchange among various U.S. Army, Federal, State, county, city and township agencies, community organizations, and the general public. The CRP outlines a specific program for establishing and maintaining community involvement in the decision-making processes for ongoing BRAC environmental activities.
Fort McClellan finalized an initial CRP in 1997. Community interviews conducted in March/April 1996 assessed the public interest in Fort McClellan's environmental programs and identified issues of concern, interested individuals and groups, and potential communication methods for maintaining dialogue with the community. The CRP summarizes the opinions obtained from the interviews and provides recommendations for community relations activities to ensure a proactive community outreach program. The Fort McClellan CRP was revised in 2000 and again in 2014 and is maintained in the administrative record and the information repositories."
