The Draft Environmental Impact Statement contains five alternatives. Alternative A—No Action. The Quarry Visitor Center (QVC) was closed to the staff and public because of serious life safety issues caused by building instability on July 12, 2006. The QVC protected 1,500 dinosaur fossils in situ and provided access to the park’s primary resource. The building would remain closed to the public; functions would remain displaced; and critical resources would be threatened. Alternative B—Preferred Alternative—Rehabilitate the Exhibit Hall and Construct a New Facility Offsite. The existing exhibit hall would be rehabilitated to adequately protect fossil resources and provide access to the public. Currently displaced functions would be constructed at a location offsite that has stable soil. Alternative C—Retain the Exhibit Hall and Construct a New Facility at the Quarry Visitor Center. The exhibit hall would be rehabilitated to protect fossil resources and provide access to the public, and the currently displaced functions would be reconstructed on the unstable soil that has caused building movement for more than 50 years. Alternative D—Retain the Exhibit Hall and Construct Wings Similar. The exhibit hall would be rehabilitated to protect fossil resources and provide access to the public. The remaining portions of the building would be reconstructed in the original footprint and dysfunctional configuration on the unstable soil that has caused building movement for more than 50 years. Alternative E—Demolish the Entire Facility and Construct a New Facility at the QVC Site. The entire building would be demolished and rebuilt on the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 unstable soil that has caused building movement for more than 50 years. General Assumptions/Conditions that Apply to all Alternatives—Engineers and architects estimate that only 10% of the historic fabric could be used for any of the alternatives. All alternatives would result in reconstruction, which is not an approved treatment under the Secretary’s guidelines.

This SRS was authorized in Public Law 109–338 including its mandate for conformance with section 8(c) of Public Law 91–383. The purpose of an SRS is to determine the degree and kind of Federal actions that may be desirable for the management and protection of an area considered to have potential for addition to the National Park System. This is an SRS of the coastal region of the state of Delaware, and a study of the many themes that relate to how those resources were used throughout history in that region. The study area will include the entire coastal area of the state of Delaware. Additional sites or locations in Delaware may also need to be considered during the study process. The SRS/EIS will address a range of alternatives including any potential roles for the NPS in preservation and interpretation of the resources of the study area. Alternatives to be considered include: No action, the potential for congressional designation of all or part of the study area as a unit of the National Park system, and any other appropriate alternative that may arise during the study process. The EIS will assess the impacts of the alternatives presented in the SRS. The public scoping meetings will include a discussion of the SRS and the EIS process including ways that the public can be involved in providing and receiving information, and reviewing and commenting upon the draft study sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:01 May 30, 2007 Jkt 211001 and associated draft EIS.
