Public meeting announcement; Offutt AFB former missile site

Omaha District
Published Nov. 28, 2023

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District will be hosting a public informational meeting on November 30, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (CST) at the Rand Community Center, in Missouri Valley, Iowa, regarding the environmental remediation of the former Offutt Air Force Base Atlas “D” Missile Site 3, located near Missouri Valley.

The former site was used as a potential launch site for Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles until its deactivation in 1964. The purpose of the environmental investigations is to determine the presence and extent of contamination from a missile wing assigned to Offutt Air Force Base during the Cold War.

This in-person meeting begins with an open house-style poster-board session at 6:00 pm where subject matter experts and project leaders will be available to answer questions and discuss project details with attendees individually. At 6:45 a presentation by USACE representatives will provide meeting attendees information on the history of the site, completed investigation activities, the project’s status, and what to expect as the investigation moves forward. An opportunity for additional questions and comments will follow the presentation.

The public is encouraged to attend and provide feedback about the environmental activities being conducted at the former Offutt Air Force Base, Atlas “D” Missile Site 3. To learn more about this project, please join us at:

Public engagement is a critical part of conducting a successful investigation. How we involve the community is documented in a Community Relations Plan (CRP) for the former Offutt Air Force Base, Atlas “D” Missile Site 3. To develop the CRP and better understand the community’s information needs about site environmental restoration activities, we need feedback from key community members and stakeholders like you.

Results of community input will be used to develop the CRP, including the preferred communication methods to assist the USACE in communicating effectively with the interested community. We invite you to provide feedback by Friday, December 15, 2023. Your input is voluntary, confidential, and more importantly, tremendously valuable and appreciated as a community service.
