NEPA/Public Engagement

The 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. GSA, as lead agency, with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC), and the National Park Service (NPS), as cooperating agencies, is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to guide the evaluation of alternatives for a new permanent location for a consolidated FBI Headquarters (HQ).

Transportation Update Meetings

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) is planning to hold public meetings to discuss the updated transportation impacts related to the consolidation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Headquarters (FBI HQ) at a new permanent location at either Greenbelt, MD; Landover, MD; or Springfield, VA.

GSA’s Draft EIS, released in November 2016, indicated that FBI recently completed a detailed analysis pointing to a need for additional parking. It was determined that the parking was not sufficient at either the Greenbelt, MD or Springfield, VA sites. The Final EIS will analyze the additional parking at each site and the associated impacts and proposed mitigations.

We are holding public meetings for each site to provide information about the methodology for changes in the modal splits, reasons for the change, impacts of the additional vehicles, and the resulting mitigations. It should be noted that the amount of parking at the Landover, MD site did not change from the Draft EIS; however, there were some revisions to the transportation mitigation measures that may be of interest.

This update provides an opportunity for the community to start formulating their comments on the Final EIS as well as to ask questions, provide input, and learn how to participate in the FBI HQ transportation activities after the conclusion of the Final EIS. The meetings will be held from 6:00 p.m. on the dates and at the locations noted below:

Greenbelt Site: Monday, February 13th, 2017
Greenbelt Public Library Auditorium; 11 Crescent Road, Greenbelt, MD 20770

Springfield Site: Tuesday, February 14th, 2017
