Plans being made for chemical depot's future Annette Cary Tri-City Hearald/Tacoma News Tribune (WA) September 13, 2009HERMISTON -- Officials are ready to start showing off the Umatilla Chemical Depot to prospective buyers.
The last of the chemical weapons stored on the site are expected to be incinerated sometime between next summer and summer 2011, and the site already has been listed as surplus, said Umatilla County Commissioner Bill Hansell.
The Umatilla Army Depot Re-Use Authority, which Hansell chairs, is working with the Army to develop a land use, economic and environmental protection plan for the depot acreage. The plan will consider possible property available for redevelopment once weapons destruction and cleanup are done.
While the Army will consider selling surplus buildings and property, it also will consider proposals to benefit the public good. Future uses also could include keeping native shrub steppe habitat as wildland.
