Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 46250 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 154 / Friday, August 8, 2008 / Notices hearing from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Navy representatives will be available at the open house information session to answer questions about the proposal and the Draft SEIS analyses. The open house and public hearing will be held at: Coronado Community Center, Nautilus Room, 1845 Strand Way, Coronado, CA 92118. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: SEIS Project Manager, Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest, 2730 McKean Street, Building 291, San Diego, CA 92136, telephone: 619–556–8509. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Navy has filed the Draft SEIS for Developing Homeport Facilities for Three NimitzClass Aircraft Carriers in Support of the U.S. Pacific Fleet with the EPA in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 U.S.C. Sections 4321–4345) and its implementing regulations (40 CFR Parts 1500–1508). The Navy is the lead agency for the Proposed Action. A Notice of Intent for the SEIS was published in the Federal Register on October 18, 2007 (Volume 72, Number 201, Pages 59084–59085), which specified that scoping comments must submitted on or before November 19, 2007. In response to local wildfires in the San Diego area, the Navy extended the normal 30-day scoping period. A second notice was published in the Federal Register Volume 72, 6 Number 218, Page 63891 on November 13, 2007, indicating that the public comment period had been extended through December 3, 2007 for a total of 47 days. The Proposed Action from the 1999 FEIS has been implemented except for some minor infrastructure upgrades, some of which were not required at the time of the FEIS. Therefore, the Navy proposes to implement those minor infrastructure upgrades in order to meet current Navy requirements. The Navy’s analysis of the existing CVN homeport facilities and infrastructure at Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI) in Coronado, California, included a summary of specific construction projects needed to satisfy the requirements set out in the Naval Sea Systems Command and Naval Facilities Engineering Command guidance documents and AntiTerrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) guidance documents. These proposed minor infrastructure upgrades to Berth LIMA are analyzed in the SEIS and include: A fendering system, mooring bollards, a CVN security building and AT/FP improvements, as well as the installation of information systems, electrical and mechanical utility VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:25 Aug 07, 2008 Jkt 214001 upgrades, paving, drainage, and site improvements. There are no practical alternatives to these requirements, as current guidelines require these features for a homeport berth. Consequently, no alternatives to the minor infrastructure upgrades are discussed. The primary focus of the SEIS is vehicular traffic and traffic-related issues in the vicinity of NASNI including evaluating the effectiveness of traffic mitigation measures implemented pursuant to the 2000 ROD. The SEIS also addresses potential environmental impacts to air quality, noise levels, biological resources, and marine water resources associated with the minor CVN berth infrastructure improvements at NASNI, and public scoping comments related to shoreline erosion along First Street in the City of Coronado. The Draft SEIS has been distributed to various Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as other interested individuals and organizations. In addition, copies of the Draft SEIS have been made available for public review at the following repositories: 1. Chula Vista Library, Civic Center Branch, 365 F Street, Chula Vista CA 91910; 2. Coronado Public Library, 640 Orange Avenue, Coronado, CA 92118; 3. National City Public Library, 1401 National City Blvd., National City, CA 91950; 4.
