Weston has been a leader in redevelopment planning and economic development for communities
affected by military base closure since 1996 and have completed over 50 redevelopment plans to date.
The following quotes are from stakeholders involved in those redevelopments:
“…they seriously consider what impact their work will have on the land and the resource, but also for the surrounding residents and the broader community; not just in the traditional sense of dust and noise and whether a driving route will need to be adjusted but, in the context of the desires and needs of those affected by the remediation effort…treated more as a respected ‘partner’…a responsible and engaged corporate neighbor.”

“…Weston Solutions has been key in guiding our negotiations with the U.S. Army and the processing of the first privatization on a Superfund site in California. WESTON has been particularly helpful in crafting the array of documents and engineering support necessary to navigate through the Early Transfer and Environmental Services Cooperative Agreement maze. I highly recommend them to any community seeking to eliminate complex contamination issues on former military sites.”
