SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Mariposa U.S. Border Station at Nogales, Arizona is a full-service land port of entry (LPOE) 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 Nogales, Sonora. Since the existing LPOE was constructed, the population of the region has grown, 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, equipment upgrades, and expansion. A larger, more efficient LPOE is needed to expedite trade and tourism while meeting the security needs of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Division. Details of the Proposed Action are described in a NEPA document entitled Nogales Mariposa US Land Port of Entry Final Environmental Assessment (Aztec Engineering, June 2009). The Draft EA was published and circulated among responsible government agencies and the public for a period of no less than 45 days.

AGENCY: Public Buildings Service, General Services Administration.

ACTION: Notice of availabilty.

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

SUMMARY: The General Services Administration is publishing a Final 
Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact 
(FONSI) for the proposed reconfiguration and expansion of the Nogales 
Mariposa land port of entry in Nogales, Arizona.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Greg Smith, Regional Environmental 
Quality Advisor (REQA), US General Services Administration, Portfolio

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Mariposa U.S. Border Station at Nogales, 
Arizona is a full-service land port of entry (LPOE) 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 Nogales, Sonora.
    Since the existing LPOE was constructed, the population of the 
region has grown, 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, equipment upgrades, and expansion. A larger, more 
efficient LPOE is needed to expedite trade and tourism while meeting 
the security needs of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Division.
    Details of the Proposed Action are described in a NEPA document 
entitled Nogales Mariposa US Land Port of Entry Final Environmental 
Assessment (Aztec Engineering, June 2009). The Draft EA was published 
and circulated among responsible government agencies and the public for 
a period of no less than 45 days. A public meeting on the Draft EA was 
held on Tuesday, September 12, 2006. Comments received during the 
meeting and circulation period were considered by GSA in this final 
decision. The action proposed includes mitigation measures to reduce 
impacts identified in the EA to a level that is less than significant.

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 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 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. Click on NEPA Library [rarr] Public Documents.
    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.
