The Fort DuPont Master Planning and Feasibility Analysis began in October 2012 with the aim of determining the best future use of the underutilized 450-acre site owned/managed by the State. The adoption of a final master plan for the Fort DuPont complex will set the direction for future development of the site; however, the plan leaves many important and potentially health-impacting details to future decisions. Both the recommended site master plan and subsequent decisions were and continue to be targets of the HIA, which was completed in June 2013.
