Administrative History

The Bergstrom Air Force Base Restoration Advisory Board was created in 1994 to be a focal point between the Bergstrom Air Force Base and the local Austin community. Members of the RAB include representatives from the Air Force Base Closure Agency, a variety of engineers, teachers, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, and many others. The Bergstrom Air Force Base Restoration Advisory Board was created to improve public participation by involving the community in the cleanup decision-making process.
