News Advisory


WASHINGTON -- The U.S. General Services Administration has scheduled two public scoping meetings this week to hear federal, state and local concerns regarding perimeter security enhancements near federally-occupied buildings in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

GSA's National Capital Region is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of perimeter security enhancements near federally-occupied buildings in the Washington Metropolitan Area. The study seeks to address concerns by federal agencies about the need for enhanced perimeter security in light of the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City that killed 168 people.

Over the past few months, GSA has met with various District officials, community representatives, businesses and industry representatives to explain GSA's review. Interested members of the public are urged to attend one of the two meetings this week:

May 21

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: GSA's National Capital Regional office building auditorium, 7th and D
Streets, S.W.

May 22

Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: GSA's National Capital Regional office building auditorium at 7th and D Streets, S.W.
