TRI-CITIES — Federal officials are seeking comments from Tri-Cities area residents on plans for the new Manhattan Project National Historical Park, which will include Hanford’s historic B Reactor.
The Tri-City Herald reports an open house will be held Feb. 4 at the Richland Library for people to express their views. It will be the public’s first opportunity to provide input since the park was dedicated in November.
Hanford is one of the park’s three sites where work was completed on the atomic bombs that ended World War II. The other sites are at Oak Ridge, Tenn., and Los Alamos, N.M.
The mayors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, have voiced concerns about the park, but also have offered to provide artifacts and photos to show the bombs’ effect on the two cities.
