The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, is
conducting a Recurring Review of the former Baywood Park
Training Area located in Morro Bay, California, to determine
if the munitions safety educational materials continue to
minimize explosives risks and be protective of human health,
safety and the environment.
The Baywood Park Training Area Formerly Used Defense
Site consists of 9,145 acres along the Pacific coast that were
used during World War II for military training. Soldiers from
Camp San Luis Obispo and the National Guard conducted
troop, vehicle and equipment maneuvers. The Navy and
Marine Corps also used a small portion of the land for
amphibious training, ordnance ranges and an impact area.
The military ceased use of Baywood Park Training Area in
1946. Munitions clearance activities have been conducted in
this area; however, munitions hazards may remain.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers invites the Morro Bay and
Los Osos communities to a public meeting on February 26
from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Morro Bay Community Center,
1001 Kennedy Way, Morro Bay, CA 93442. During the
meeting, the Army Corps of Engineers will discuss the
recurring review process and solicit community comments
about the effectiveness of the safety information.

Affairs, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District,.
