U.S. Army Reserve Center Decommissioning
Multiple States, Middle Atlantic and Northeast Regions
Hunter Research conducted Section 106 architectural and archaeological surveys of nearly twenty U.S. Army Reserve Centers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island to advance planning for decommissioning them for other uses. This required coordination with multiple state historic preservation offices and completion of forms and reports that met each state’s guidelines, as well as providing close coordination with the environmental consultant and subject-matter specialists overseeing the project for the 99th U.S. Army Regional Support Command. Eligibility evaluations were required for former training centers, NIKE missile command and launch centers, communications complexes and vehicle maintenance facilities. Subsurface testing was conducted at some sites located on campuses with areas that had the potential for prehistoric or historic archaeological resources.
