Investigations Regarding Certifications of Eligibility To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance, 6210-6211 [E8-1824]

Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 6210 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 22 / Friday, February 1, 2008 / Notices The proposed Ottumwa JCC will be new construction, which will utilize a campus setting. The facility will consist of seven buildings, which will support approximately 300 resident students with 104 staff members. The proposed buildings include an administrative/ wellness center/maintenance building, two dormitories, an educational/ vocational building, a cafeteria/ warehouse building, a student services/ welcome center building and a recreation building. The proposed site also includes outdoor recreation fields and courts and associated paved parking areas and drives. The gross area of all of the proposed buildings will be approximately 150,000 square feet. The proposed Ottumwa JCC is not expected to have any negative impact on the demographics of the surrounding neighborhoods. The proposed Ottumwa JCC is expected to have a positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged youths living in the Ottumwa and southeast Iowa areas. The purpose of the JCC is to provide basic education, vocational skills training, health care, and work experience, to allow disadvantaged persons from Ottumwa and surrounding communities to improve their position in the workplace and society. The goal of the JCC is to allow the disadvantaged to obtain a better education and to allow participants to reach a level of economic security above the poverty line. If these goals are reached, the JCC will have a positive impact by increasing the current educational and employment levels in the surrounding communities. No proposed or listed endangered or threatened species, critical habitat or wetlands are known to exist within the proposed project area. The proposed project is not expected to have an adverse effect on any archaeological or historical properties since there are no documented historic or cultural sites within a one mile radius. The JCC is also not expected to have an impact on the overall population numbers in the community based on the estimated 300 students that will live at the facility. City services, such as Police, Fire and Emergency Services will not expect additional stress to their current capabilities since these services are currently providing respective services to the area. Utility services, such as water, electric, gas and sanitary sewer, would be able to absorb the additional loads from the JCC with little to no impact. The development of the property will involve construction of VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:22 Jan 31, 2008 Jkt 214001 new water, sanitary and storm sewer lines. The proposed JCC is not expected to have negative impacts on air quality in the area, since it does not involve industrial or commercial processes. Temporary aesthetic impacts and minor noise impacts are anticipated during construction activities. Aesthetic impacts will be mitigated with the development of the property and the noise impacts will be short-termed and not significant. The proposed Ottumwa JCC development is not expected to result in a significant increase in vehicular traffic, since many of the JCC students will either live in the dormitories or use public transportation. While some JCC students may use personal vehicles, the roadway infrastructure in the area is capable of absorbing the additional traffic. Based on the information gathered during the preparation of the NEPA Environment Assessment, no environmental concerns were found to exist on the proposed JCC site other than the proposed site is considered ‘‘prime farmland’’ that is currently being used for row crop farming. Based on the size of the proposed development and the significant amount of defined prime farmland in the surrounding areas, the proposed development of the property is not considered a significant impact to the agricultural output for the area. The alternatives considered in the preparation of this FONSI were as follows: (1) No Action; and (2) Continue Project as Proposed. The No Action alternative was not selected. The U.S. Department of Labor’s goal of improving the Job Corps Program by improving the learning environment at Job Corps Centers would not be met under this alternative. Due to the suitability of the proposed site for establishment of a new Job Corps Center, and the absence of any identified significant adverse environmental impacts from locating a Job Corps Center on the subject property, the ‘‘Continue Project as Proposed’’ alternative was selected. Based on the information gathered during the preparation of the EA, no environmental liabilities, current or historical, were found to exist on the proposed Job Corps Center site. The construction of the Job Corps Center at College Avenue and 6th Street, Ottumwa, Iowa will not create any significant adverse impacts on the environment.
