The transformation of the Fort Bragg Headlands from what was once a thriving lumber mill through the mill closure and subsequent 17 year clean-up project to its renewed role in this coastal community has and will continue to involve many players. Some are regulatory--agencies like CA Coastal Commission, Department of Toxic Substances Control, Department of Dam Safety, Department of Fish and Wildlife, Department of Water Resources.
Some are tasked with planning and managing resources to benefit the residents and businesses in the City of Fort Bragg.
Some are concerned and involved citizens of the planet, committed to assuring that the small corner of it over which any community has sway fulfills its responsibility. The Fort Bragg Headlands Consortium's goal is to investigate the assumptions made about what decisions are critical to the future. We try to offer the science to help the community make informed decisions.
CA Coastal Commission
The Commission is committed to protecting and enhancing California's coast and ocean for present and future generations. It does so through careful planning and regulation of environmentally-sustainable development, rigorous use of science, strong public participation, education, and effective intergovernmental coordination.
Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC)
DTSC was established to protect Californians against threats from hazardous waste and restore properties affected by environmental contamination to productive use. DTSC investigates and cleans up existing contamination, regulates the management of hazardous wastes, and challenges manufacturers to find and use safer chemicals in consumer products. This work is performed by scientists, engineers, toxicologists, chemists, geologists, attorneys, criminal investigators, and administrative staff. The office responsible for oversight of G-P's clean-up of the Fort Bragg Headlands is the Berkeley Regional Office.
