A Letter from the Superintendent
We at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site are excited to share with you that we have completed the necessary compliance work for the "East and South Vancouver Barracks Draft Master Plan and Environmental Assessment." Completed in 2012, (and with the Finding of No Significant Impact signed on December 20, 2012) this master plan will establish clear direction for the rehabilitation and public use of the East and South Barracks. The National Park Service assumed ownership of the East and South Barracks on Memorial Day, May 28, 2012, when these areas were transferred from the U.S. Army to Fort Vancouver National Historic Site.
Now that the substantial planning effort has been completed, we are looking forward to implementing the elements of the plan. As acknowledged in the plan, these efforts will not occur over night, and it will likely take years before the master plan is fully implemented. The National Park Service is fully committed to the proper management of the East and South Vancouver Barracks, and their transformation into a dynamic, sustainable public service campus where the public can enjoy the multi-layered history of our national park.
If you have questions at any time during the planning process, please don't hesitate to call (360) 816-6212.
