National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires federal agencies to consider the impacts that a proposed action may have on the human environment as part of their decision making process. For the proposed action, GSA has determined that the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) is appropriate. Public participation is the cornerstone of the NEPA process, and throughout the development of the EA, the public will be provided a number of opportunities to provide feedback to GSA.
GSA has already completed the NEPA process for the 1800 F Modernization and for the St. Elizabeths West Campus Development projects. An EA and Finding of No Significant Impact was prepared for the 1800 F Modernization and GSA has prepared Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) and Records of Decision (ROD) for the St. Elizabeths project. Copies of the St. Elizabeths EIS and ROD can be found at: www.stelizabethsdevelopment.com (non-government site). Review a copy of the 1800 F EA/FONSI.
Scoping period: April 14, 2014 through May 14, 2014
GSA is seeking input on the “scope” of the EA. Scoping is the best time to get involved in the process! Your input at this stage is invaluable in helping GSA identify early issues and concerns that should be considered in our decision making.
Scoping comments will be accepted through May 14, 2014. Comments can either be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
