Section 106 Staff in the Secret City


Staff from the Tennessee Historical Commission’s Section 106 program traveled to Oak Ridge for discussions regarding future Department of Energy (DOE) projects and a consultation meeting with DOE, National Park Service, the City of Oak Ridge, and other consulting parties to discuss completed K-25 Memorandum of Agreement stipulations and progress DOE has made towards completing the remaining stipulations.  Section 106 staff attended the grand opening of the K-25 History Center, now an integral part of the Manhattan Project National Historical Park. Onsite staff responsible for environmental compliance of DOE undertakings guided Section 106 staff through the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Y-12 complex, and the historic Freels Bend cabin that demonstrates life in Oak Ridge before the Manhattan Project transformed it into “the Secret City.”
