For this reason, NPS announces its intent to prepare an EIS to analyze potential environmental impacts from the proposed action, the range of reasonable alternatives, and mitigation options. This EIS will consider alternative actions. Those alternatives may include: (1) Construction of a boathouse with a footprint of 18,682 square feet on the NPS-owned site within the C&O Canal NHP, which is described as Alternative C in the 2006 EA; (2) Construction of a boathouse with a footprint of 15,000 square feet on the NPS-owned site within the C&O Canal NHP; (3) Construction of a University Boathouse east of 34th Street on an NPS-owned site within the Georgetown Waterfront Park; (4) Construction of a University Boathouse upon the site owned by the University; and (5) A No Action alternative, which would not require this land exchange and would involve the continued use of the Thompson’s Boat Center to house the University’s rowing program. Topics for analysis may include the constructability of the boathouse and/or by-right development on the Universityowned site; natural, cultural and intangible resource values of the University-owned site; hydrology within the project area; possible impacts on wildlife; possible wetlands; balancing uses on the Capital Crescent Trail; and the cumulative impacts of the project in combination with the Washington Canoe Club, Potomac Boat Club, Jacks Boats, Dempsey’s boathouse site, potential George Washington University boathouse and Thompson’s Boat Center. The EIS will be prepared in compliance with NEPA and applicable regulations, including NPS Director’s Order 12 and Interior Departmental Manual at 516 DM. DATES: The NPS will conduct an additional scoping meeting for this EIS on December 11, 2007, 6:30–9 p.m. at St. John’s Church, 3240 O Street, NW., Washington, DC., which will be widely announced in newspapers of general circulation as well as through the extensive mailing list developed during the EA process. NPS invites interested agencies, organization, and members of the public to submit comments or suggestions to assist in identifying significant environmental issues and in determining the appropriate scope of VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:17 Nov 30, 2007 Jkt 214001 the EIS. Written comments on the scope of the EIS are invited. The public scoping period will continue for at least 45 days from the date of publication of this notice. NPS will hold at least one public meeting during the public scoping period, which will be widely announced in newspapers of general circulation as well as through the extensive mailing list developed during the EA process. ADDRESSES: Comments and suggestions on the scope of the EIS should be addressed to: Kevin Brandt, Superintendent, C&O Canal NHP, 1850 Dual Highway, Suite 100, Hagerstown, Maryland 21742; or by electronic mail at NCR_Georgetownboathouse@nps.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kevin Brandt, Superintendent, C&O Canal NHP, 1850 Dual Highway, Suite 100, Hagerstown, Maryland 21742. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The 1986 plan for the Georgetown Waterfront Park, which was established in 1984 by the National Capital Planning Commission as part of the Park System of the Nation’s Capital, includes a nonmotorized boathouse zone, as detailed below, in the proximity of Key Bridge where boathouses had been located historically. The University Boathouse was proposed for location within this boathouse zone which encompasses portions of the C&O Canal NHP as well as the Georgetown Waterfront Park. To accommodate the growth of the historic sport of rowing on the Potomac River, the Georgetown Waterfront Plan, which was approved in 1986, established a non-motorized boathouse zone along the shoreline in Georgetown from 34th Street to approximately 1,250 feet above Key Bridge, at roughly the historic location of boathouses dating back to the 19th century. A total of five boathouses would be located in the boathouse zone, including the University (future, private), Washington Canoe Club (existing, private), Potomac Boat Club (existing, private), NPS boathouse for singles, doubles, canoes and kayaks (future, public), and George Washington University (future, private). Additionally, Thompson’s Boat Center (NPS concessioner) would continue to provide space for scholastic and privately-owned shells. In 1989 the University acquired a oneacre boathouse site with a one-mile long perpetual access easement over the Capital Crescent Trail. Because its collegiate rowing program is housed at Thompson’s Boat Center which is inadequate for its purposes, the University evaluated building a University boathouse on the site and using its easement to access the site. PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The NPS, concerned about the proposal of the University to build a boathouse outside the boathouse zone upon the sensitive site owned by the University, has been engaged in negotiations with the University since 1989.
