Camp Bonneville Reuse Plan

Clark County, Washington

BergerABAM worked with Vancouver-Clark Parks & Recreation to develop refinement strategy options for the reuse plan for the U.S. Army’s Camp Bonneville in southeastern Clark County. BergerABAM worked with the Army’s base clean-up team and facilitated a workshop with Parks staff and others. The workshop examined the existing reuse plan and the remedial action contract map of potential sites of unexploded ordnance and identified updated site-specific opportunities and constraints. We reviewed the federal, state, and county environmental codes and regulations that apply to this site, established in 1909 as a drill field and rifle range and used for the next 85 years to train members of the military. Most of the site is undeveloped and more than half of its 6 square miles is forested. BergerABAM prepared a revised reuse plan that identified locations for campgrounds for recreational vehicles, camping villages, restroom and showers, shooting ranges, a general store and a transit station, a bike rental shop, amphitheater, group picnic shelters, equestrian facilities, paved trails, and parking areas. We also provided a layout for vehicular circulation.
