An average of 180 commercial vehicles, 350 bicycles, 10,000 automobiles, and 11,000 pedestrians cross the border at this station every day. Since the POE was constructed in 1984, the population of the region has grown, illegal immigration and smuggling have become epidemic, inspection technology has significantly improved, law enforcement activities have increased, and trade policies have changed dramatically. Consequently, the existing facilities are overloaded and in need of repair, upgrades, and expansion. The General Services Administration (GSA) proposes to relocate the existing commercial port of entry, currently in downtown San Luis, Arizona to a vacant former Bureau of Reclamation (BoR) property to the east of the City. Details of the Proposed Action are described in a NEPA document entitled San Luis, Arizona Commercial Port of Entry Project Environmental Assessment (U.S. Bureau of Reclamation 2000). The BoR used the 2000 EA to support a previous FONSI which determined that Federal lands could be transferred to the Greater Yuma Port Authority (GYPA) for a new port of entry without any significant environmental impacts. Because the BoR EA included detailed descriptions of the affected area and the proposed facilities to be constructed the GSA has adopted the BoR’s 2000 EA and FONSI in support of this FONSI regarding the impacts of constructing of the commercial POE. This action includes mitigation measures to reduce impacts identified in the BoR EA to a level that is less than significant. The GYPA’s commitments to implement these mitigation measures have also been included as conditions of the transfer of 80 acres of land within the project area to the General Service Administration (GSA) for the construction of the commercial POE. The original EA and BoR FONSI were published and circulated among responsible government agencies for a period of no less than 30 days. Comments received during circulation were considered by GSA in this final decision. Finding Pursuant to the provision of GSA Order ADM 1095.1F, the PBS NEPA Desk Guide, and the regulations issued by the Council of Environmental Quality, (40 CFR parts 1500 to 1508), this notice advises the public of our finding, that the action described above will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment.

Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The General Services Administration is publishing a Final 
Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact 
(FONSI) for the proposed construction of a new commercial port of entry 
in San Luis, Arizona.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Morris Angell, Regional 
Environmental Quality Advisor (REQA), Capital Investment Branch, 
Portfolio Management Division, US General Services Administration, 450 
Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102, phone 415-522-3473, or

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The US Border Station at San Luis, Arizona 
is a full-service land port of entry (POE) where the Federal Government 
inspects privately-owned vehicles (POV), pedestrians, and commercial 
vehicles seeking to enter the United States. Immediately to the south 
is the Mexican City of San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora. An average of 180 
commercial vehicles, 350 bicycles, 10,000 automobiles, and 11,000 
pedestrians cross the border at this station every day. Since the POE 
was constructed in 1984, the population of the region has grown, 
illegal immigration and smuggling have become epidemic, inspection 
technology has significantly improved, law enforcement activities have 
increased, and trade policies have changed dramatically. Consequently, 
the existing facilities are overloaded and in need of repair, upgrades, 
and expansion.
    The General Services Administration (GSA) proposes to relocate the 
existing commercial port of entry, currently in downtown San Luis, 
Arizona to a vacant former Bureau of Reclamation (BoR) property to the 
east of the City. Details of the Proposed Action are described in a 
NEPA document entitled San Luis, Arizona Commercial Port of Entry 
Project Environmental Assessment (U.S. Bureau of Reclamation 2000).
    The BoR used the 2000 EA to support a previous FONSI which 
determined that Federal lands could be transferred to the Greater Yuma 
Port Authority (GYPA) for a new port of entry without any significant 
environmental impacts. Because the BoR EA included detailed 
descriptions of the affected area and the proposed facilities to be 
constructed the GSA has adopted the BoR's 2000 EA and FONSI in support 
of this FONSI regarding the impacts of constructing of the commercial 
POE.
    This action includes mitigation measures to reduce impacts 
identified in the BoR EA to a level that is less than significant. The 
GYPA's commitments to implement these mitigation measures have also 
been included as conditions of the transfer of 80 acres of land within 
the project area to the General Service Administration (GSA) for the 
construction of the commercial POE. The original EA and BoR FONSI were 
published and circulated among responsible government agencies for a 
period of no less than 30 days. Comments received during circulation 
were considered by GSA in this final decision.
Finding
    Pursuant to the provision of GSA Order ADM 1095.1F, the PBS NEPA 
Desk Guide, and the regulations issued by the Council of Environmental 
Quality, (40 CFR parts 1500 to 1508), this notice advises the public of 
our finding, that the action described above will not significantly 
affect the quality of the human environment.
Basis for Finding
    The environmental impacts of constructing and operating the 
proposed facilities were considered in the Final EA and FONSI pursuant 
to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Council on 
Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations implementing NEPA. The Final EA 
and FONSI are available for review at the San Luis Public Library, 731 
N 1st Ave., San Luis, AZ 85349. The Final EA and FONSI can also be 
viewed on the GSA Web site at http://www.gsa.gov/nepa.
    The build alternative will result in temporary construction impacts 
involving the air quality (dust) and noise, a minor loss of soil and 
vegetation, and potential stormwater pollution runoff from the site. To 
mitigate potential long-term impacts, GSA will implement the measures 
that are discussed in the Environmental Assessment and FONSI.
    The Finding of No Significant Impact will become final thirty (30) 
days after the publication of this notice, provided that no information 
leading to a contrary finding is received or comes to light during this 
period.
