The Rocky Flats Stewardship Council formed in February 2006.  The Rocky Flats Stewardship Council’s mission is:

a.                   To provide continuing local engagement on activities occurring at the Rocky Flats site regarding long-term stewardship of residual contamination and refuge management;

b.                   To provide a forum to track issues related to former site employees, including but not limited to long-term health benefits and pension programs;

c.                   To provide an ongoing mechanism to help maintain public knowledge of Rocky Flats and the ongoing needs and responsibilities regarding contaminant management and refuge management; and

d.                   To provide an ongoing forum to engage on all other issues pertinent to Rocky Flats, as determined by the Stewardship Council Board of Directors.

The Stewardship Council is managed by a Board of Directors.  Members include elected officials from ten counties and cities surrounding Rocky Flats and four community representatives.  The Board of Directors meets five times per year.  Funding is provided through a grant from DOE and annual contributions from member governments.  Community representatives are not required to contribute funds in order to serve on the Board.

Please feel free to contact the Stewardship Council’s Executive Director, David Abelson, with any questions.  His number is (303) 412-1200; you can also email him by clicking here.
