SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authorization: House Public Works Transportation Committee Resolution dated May 13, 1993. The Army Corps of Engineers intends to prepare an EIS/EIR to assess the environmental effects associated with proposed erosion mitigating measures in the study area. Study Area: The study area is located along the Pacific Ocean coastline in the Cities of Encinitas and Solana Beach, San Diego County, CA. Encinitas is approximately 10 miles south of Oceanside Harbor, and 17 miles north of Point La Jolla. The City of Encinitas’ shoreline, about 6 miles long, is bounded by Batiquitos Lagoon to the north and on the south by San Elijo Lagoon. The City of Solana Beach is bounded by San Elijo Lagoon to the north and on the south by the City of Del Mar. The City’s shoreline is about 2 miles long for a total of about 8 miles of study area shoreline. A major portion of the shoreline segment consists of narrow sand and cobble beaches fronting nearshore bluffs. A small stretch of beach west of the San Elijo Lagoon is backed by Highway 101 (Pacific Coast Highway) and is the only segment of the beach not backed by coastal bluffs. Problems and Needs: A number of public concerns have been identified including: 1. Bluff erosion threatens property, including state and city owned lands, roads, railroads and infrastructure, as well as private residences atop the bluffs. 2. Public safety due to episodic bluff failure. 3. Closure of Old Highway 101 at Cardiff during storm events. 4. Bluff toe erosion and curtailed recreation activity resulting from eroded beach conditions. Proposed Action and Alternatives: The Los Angeles District will investigate and evaluate all reasonable alternatives to address the problems and needs identified above. In addition to the NO ACTION alternative, both structural (breakwaters, artificial reefs, groins, revetments, notch fills, and seawalls) and non-structural (best management practices, and beach nourishment) measures will be investigated. Previous Actions: The Los Angeles District originally published a Notice of Intent for this project in the Federal Register on September 20, 2001. A Notice of Availability of the Draft EIS/ EIR was published in the Federal Register on December 2, 2005. The VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:17 Apr 19, 2012 Jkt 226001 project was modified following receipt of comments on the original Draft EIS/ EIR. The modified project is the subject of this Notice of Intent. Scoping: The scoping process is ongoing and has involved preliminary coordination with Federal, State, and local agencies. Two public scoping meetings are scheduled. The first on May 2, 2012, from 1 to 3 p.m. at City Hall, Poinsettia Room, 505 South Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA. The second on May 2, 2012, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Solana Beach City Hall, City Council Chamber, 635 South Highway 101, Solana Beach, CA. The public will have an opportunity to express opinions and raise any issues relating to the scope of the Feasibility Study and the EIS/EIR. The public as well as Federal, State, and local agencies are encouraged to participate by submitting data, information, and comments identifying relevant environmental and socioeconomic issues to be addressed in the study. Useful information includes other environmental studies, published and unpublished data, alternatives that could be addressed in the analysis, and potential mitigation measures associated with the proposed action. All comments enter into the public record. The scoping meetings will also serve as scoping meetings for the purposes of compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Availability of the Draft EIS/EIR: The Draft EIS/EIR is scheduled to be published and circulated in November 2012, and a public hearing to receive comments on the Draft EIS/EIR will be held after it is published. Dated: April 9, 2012. Steven B. Sigloch, Jr., Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army, Acting Commander and Acting District Engineer.

Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: Pursuant to Section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 CFR Parts 1500– 1508), the Department of the Navy SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23671 (DoN) announces that it has prepared and filed the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) evaluating the potential environmental consequences associated with the disposal and reuse of Hunters Point Naval Shipyard (HPS), San Francisco, California. The DoN is required to close HPS per Public Law 101–510, the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990, as amended. This Notice of Availability (NOA) initiates a 30calender day wait period and public review period for the Final SEIS, beginning the date that this NOA is published in the Federal Register. During this time no federal decision on the proposed action shall be made or recorded. Following the 30-day wait/ review period, as required by CEQ Regulations for Implementing NEPA, Sec. 1506.10(b)2, the DoN may make a decision on the proposed action and a Record of Decision (ROD) could be issued. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Director, BRAC PMO West, Attn: Mr. Ronald Bochenek, 1455 Frazee Road, Suite 900, San Diego, CA 92108–4310, telephone 619–532–0906, fax 619–532– 9858, email: ronald.bochenek.ctr@navy.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DoN, as lead agency, has prepared and filed the Final SEIS for the Disposal and Reuse of HPS, San Francisco, California in accordance with the requirements of the NEPA of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4345) and its implementing regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508). A Notice of Intent for the SEIS was published in the Federal Register on September 5, 2008 (Federal Register/Vol. 73, No. 173 pgs 51797 and 51798/Friday, September 5, 2008/Notices). The purpose of the proposed action and the preferred alternative is the disposal of HPS from federal ownership (861 dry and submerged acres) and its subsequent reuse in a manner consistent with the amended HPS Redevelopment Plan as adopted by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (SFRA) on August 3, 2010. HPS Phase 1, comprising approximately 75 acres, was disposed of by the DoN in 2004 and is not part of the proposed project evaluated in the Final SEIS. The DoN is required to close HPS in accordance with Public Law 101–510, the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990, as amended. In accordance with NEPA, before disposing of any real property, the DoN must analyze the environmental effects of the disposal of the HPS property. The environmental consequences resulting from the disposal and reuse of E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 23672 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 77 / Friday, April 20, 2012 / Notices HPS were previously evaluated by the DoN in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Disposal and Reuse of HPS, San Francisco, CA, March 2000. The DoN issued a ROD on November 29, 2000 indicating that disposal of HPS would be accomplished in a manner as set forth in the previous 1997 HPS Redevelopment Plan. The Final SEIS supplements the previous 2000 FEIS due to changes that have occurred to the proposed reuse plan since the DoN prepared the 2000 FEIS and 2000 ROD. The Final SEIS has identified and considered six reuse alternatives for HPS and a no action alternative. DoN disposal is assumed as part of each reuse alternative. The no action alternative assumes retention of the HPS property by the Government in a ‘‘caretaker status’’ and no reuse or redevelopment. Alternative 1 (‘‘Stadium Plan Alternative’’) would redevelop HPS with a wide range of uses including a mixed-use community with 2,650 residential units, retail (125,000 square feet (sq ft)), research and development (R&D) (2.5 million sq ft), community services (50,000 sq ft), and parks and recreational open space (232 acres). A major component would include a new 69,000-seat football stadium. This alternative would also include a 300slip marina, improvements to stabilize the shoreline, and a new bridge over Yosemite Slough. New infrastructure would serve the development as necessary. Alternative 1A (the ‘‘Stadium Plan/No Bridge Alternative’’) includes the disposal of HPS by the DoN and its reuse with the same level, land use types, and density of development as Alternative 1, except that the Yosemite Slough bridge would not be constructed. Alternative 2 (the ‘‘Non-Stadium Plan/Additional R&D Alternative’’) includes many of the same components as Alternative 1 including 2,650 residential units, retail (125,000 sq ft), community services (50,000 sq ft), and parks and recreational open space (222 acres), a 300-slip marina, improvements to stabilize the shoreline, and a new bridge over Yosemite Slough. Under this alternative, a new football stadium would not be constructed. Instead, an additional 2.5 million sq ft, for a total of 5 million sq ft, of R&D space would be developed. Alternative 2A (the ‘‘Non-Stadium Plan/Housing and R&D Alternative’’) includes a mix of uses including 4,275 residential units, retail (125,000 sq ft), R&D (3 million sq ft), community services (50,000 sq ft), and parks and recreational open space (222 acres). This VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:17 Apr 19, 2012 Jkt 226001 alternative would also include a 300slip marina, improvements to stabilize the shoreline, and a new bridge over Yosemite Slough. No new football stadium would be constructed. Alternative 3 (the ‘‘Non-Stadium Plan/Additional Housing Alternative’’) does not include a new stadium, but is comprised of a mix of land uses including 4,000 residential units, retail (125,000 sq ft), R&D (2.5 million sq ft), community services (50,000 sq ft), and parks and recreational open space (245 acres). The alternative also includes a 300-slip marina, improvements to stabilize the shoreline, and a new bridge over Yosemite Slough. Alternative 4 (‘‘the Non-Stadium Plan/Reduced Development Alternative’’) includes a reduced density of development. Development proposed under this alternative includes 1,855 residential units, retail (87,500 sq ft), R&D (1.75 million sq ft), community services (50,000 sq ft), and parks and recreational open space (245 acres). This alternative does not include a new stadium, a bridge over Yosemite Slough, a marina, nor shoreline stabilization. The ‘‘No Action Alternative’’ is required by NEPA and evaluates the impacts at HPS in the event that the property is not disposed. Under this alternative the property would be retained by the DoN in caretaker status. Existing leases would continue until they expire or are terminated, and no new leases would be executed. No reuse or redevelopment would occur under this alternative. For each alternative, the Final SEIS addresses the potential direct, indirect, short-term, and long-term impacts on the human and natural environments, including the following resource areas: Transportation, traffic, and circulation; air quality and greenhouse gases; noise; land use and recreation; visual resources and aesthetics; socioeconomics; hazards and hazardous substances; geology and soils; water resources; utilities; public services; cultural resources; biological resources; and environmental justice. The analysis also includes an analysis of cumulative impacts from other reasonably foreseeable federal, state, or local activities at and around HPS. In preparation of the SEIS, the DoN completed a public scoping period from September 5 to October 17, 2008, and held a public scoping meeting on September 23, 2008, to identify community concerns and local issues that should be addressed in the SEIS. Federal, state, and local agencies and interested parties provided oral and written comments to the DoN and identified specific issues or topics of PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 environmental concern that should be addressed in the SEIS. In addition, the DoN facilitated community outreach activities to solicit additional comments and concerns and identified issues from interested community groups in 2009. The DoN considered the scoping and outreach comments in determining the scope of the SEIS. Following the public scoping period, the DoN released a Draft SEIS for public review and comment on February 23, 2011. The DoN published a NOA in the Federal Register (Federal Register/Vol. 76, No. 36 pgs 10012–10014/ Wednesday, February 23, 2011/Notices) to announce the availability of the Draft SEIS and public comment period on February 23, 2011. In addition, the Draft SEIS NOA was also published in the San Francisco Chronicle and Oakland Tribune newspapers; mailed to agencies and interested members of the public; and posted to the DoN BRAC PMO Web site (http://www.bracpmo.navy.mil). Copies of the Draft SEIS were circulated for review and comment to government agencies, local organizations, Native American tribes, and interested members of the public. The Draft SEIS was also made available at seven public locations, including six public libraries and the City Planning Department. Electronic copies were also posted to the DoN BRAC PMO Web site for download. The Draft SEIS was available for a 45day public review period that began on February 23, 2011 and ended on May 6, 2011. A public hearing was conducted during the review period at the Southeast Community Facility, Alex L. Pitcher Community Room, 1800 Oakdale Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94124 on March 15, 2011, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The DoN considered all public comments received on the Draft SEIS and the Final SEIS has been revised, as appropriate, in response to all public comments. All Draft SEIS comments and the DoN responses are included in the Final SEIS. The Final SEIS has been distributed to various Federal, State, local agencies, and Native American tribes, as well as other interested individuals and organizations.

Notice of Availability of the Final Supplemental Environmental 
Impact Statement for the Disposal and Reuse of Hunters Point Naval 
Shipyard, San Francisco, CA

AGENCY: Department of the Navy, DoD.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: Pursuant to Section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental 
Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as implemented by the Council on 
Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508), the 
Department of the Navy (DoN) announces that it has prepared and filed 
the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) evaluating 
the potential environmental consequences associated with the disposal 
and reuse of Hunters Point Naval Shipyard (HPS), San Francisco, 
California. The DoN is required to close HPS per Public Law 101-510, 
the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990, as amended. This 
Notice of Availability (NOA) initiates a 30-calender day wait period 
and public review period for the Final SEIS, beginning the date that 
this NOA is published in the Federal Register. During this time no 
federal decision on the proposed action shall be made or recorded. 
Following the 30-day wait/review period, as required by CEQ Regulations 
for Implementing NEPA, Sec. 1506.10(b)2, the DoN may make a decision on 
the proposed action and a Record of Decision (ROD) could be issued.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DoN, as lead agency, has prepared and 
filed the Final SEIS for the Disposal and Reuse of HPS, San Francisco, 
California in accordance with the requirements of the NEPA of 1969 (42 
U.S.C. 4321-4345) and its implementing regulations (40 CFR parts 1500-
1508). A Notice of Intent for the SEIS was published in the Federal 
Register on September 5, 2008 (Federal Register/Vol. 73, No. 173 pgs 
51797 and 51798/Friday, September 5, 2008/Notices). The purpose of the 
proposed action and the preferred alternative is the disposal of HPS 
from federal ownership (861 dry and submerged acres) and its subsequent 
reuse in a manner consistent with the amended HPS Redevelopment Plan as 
adopted by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency (SFRA) on August 3, 
2010. HPS Phase 1, comprising approximately 75 acres, was disposed of 
by the DoN in 2004 and is not part of the proposed project evaluated in 
the Final SEIS. The DoN is required to close HPS in accordance with 
Public Law 101-510, the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 
1990, as amended. In accordance with NEPA, before disposing of any real 
property, the DoN must analyze the environmental effects of the 
disposal of the HPS property.
    The environmental consequences resulting from the disposal and 
reuse of

[[Page 23672]]

HPS were previously evaluated by the DoN in the Final Environmental 
Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Disposal and Reuse of HPS, San 
Francisco, CA, March 2000. The DoN issued a ROD on November 29, 2000 
indicating that disposal of HPS would be accomplished in a manner as 
set forth in the previous 1997 HPS Redevelopment Plan. The Final SEIS 
supplements the previous 2000 FEIS due to changes that have occurred to 
the proposed reuse plan since the DoN prepared the 2000 FEIS and 2000 
ROD.
    The Final SEIS has identified and considered six reuse alternatives 
for HPS and a no action alternative. DoN disposal is assumed as part of 
each reuse alternative. The no action alternative assumes retention of 
the HPS property by the Government in a ``caretaker status'' and no 
reuse or redevelopment.
    Alternative 1 (``Stadium Plan Alternative'') would redevelop HPS 
with a wide range of uses including a mixed-use community with 2,650 
residential units, retail (125,000 square feet (sq ft)), research and 
development (R&D) (2.5 million sq ft), community services (50,000 sq 
ft), and parks and recreational open space (232 acres). A major 
component would include a new 69,000-seat football stadium. This 
alternative would also include a 300-slip marina, improvements to 
stabilize the shoreline, and a new bridge over Yosemite Slough. New 
infrastructure would serve the development as necessary.
    Alternative 1A (the ``Stadium Plan/No Bridge Alternative'') 
includes the disposal of HPS by the DoN and its reuse with the same 
level, land use types, and density of development as Alternative 1, 
except that the Yosemite Slough bridge would not be constructed.
    Alternative 2 (the ``Non-Stadium Plan/Additional R&D Alternative'') 
includes many of the same components as Alternative 1 including 2,650 
residential units, retail (125,000 sq ft), community services (50,000 
sq ft), and parks and recreational open space (222 acres), a 300-slip 
marina, improvements to stabilize the shoreline, and a new bridge over 
Yosemite Slough. Under this alternative, a new football stadium would 
not be constructed. Instead, an additional 2.5 million sq ft, for a 
total of 5 million sq ft, of R&D space would be developed.
    Alternative 2A (the ``Non-Stadium Plan/Housing and R&D 
Alternative'') includes a mix of uses including 4,275 residential 
units, retail (125,000 sq ft), R&D (3 million sq ft), community 
services (50,000 sq ft), and parks and recreational open space (222 
acres). This alternative would also include a 300-slip marina, 
improvements to stabilize the shoreline, and a new bridge over Yosemite 
Slough. No new football stadium would be constructed.
    Alternative 3 (the ``Non-Stadium Plan/Additional Housing 
Alternative'') does not include a new stadium, but is comprised of a 
mix of land uses including 4,000 residential units, retail (125,000 sq 
ft), R&D (2.5 million sq ft), community services (50,000 sq ft), and 
parks and recreational open space (245 acres). The alternative also 
includes a 300-slip marina, improvements to stabilize the shoreline, 
and a new bridge over Yosemite Slough.
    Alternative 4 (``the Non-Stadium Plan/Reduced Development 
Alternative'') includes a reduced density of development. Development 
proposed under this alternative includes 1,855 residential units, 
retail (87,500 sq ft), R&D (1.75 million sq ft), community services 
(50,000 sq ft), and parks and recreational open space (245 acres). This 
alternative does not include a new stadium, a bridge over Yosemite 
Slough, a marina, nor shoreline stabilization.
    The ``No Action Alternative'' is required by NEPA and evaluates the 
impacts at HPS in the event that the property is not disposed. Under 
this alternative the property would be retained by the DoN in caretaker 
status. Existing leases would continue until they expire or are 
terminated, and no new leases would be executed. No reuse or 
redevelopment would occur under this alternative.
    For each alternative, the Final SEIS addresses the potential 
direct, indirect, short-term, and long-term impacts on the human and 
natural environments, including the following resource areas: 
Transportation, traffic, and circulation; air quality and greenhouse 
gases; noise; land use and recreation; visual resources and aesthetics; 
socioeconomics; hazards and hazardous substances; geology and soils; 
water resources; utilities; public services; cultural resources; 
biological resources; and environmental justice. The analysis also 
includes an analysis of cumulative impacts from other reasonably 
foreseeable federal, state, or local activities at and around HPS.
    In preparation of the SEIS, the DoN completed a public scoping 
period from September 5 to October 17, 2008, and held a public scoping 
meeting on September 23, 2008, to identify community concerns and local 
issues that should be addressed in the SEIS. Federal, state, and local 
agencies and interested parties provided oral and written comments to 
the DoN and identified specific issues or topics of environmental 
concern that should be addressed in the SEIS. In addition, the DoN 
facilitated community outreach activities to solicit additional 
comments and concerns and identified issues from interested community 
groups in 2009. The DoN considered the scoping and outreach comments in 
determining the scope of the SEIS.
    Following the public scoping period, the DoN released a Draft SEIS 
for public review and comment on February 23, 2011. The DoN published a 
NOA in the Federal Register (Federal Register/Vol. 76, No. 36 pgs 
10012-10014/Wednesday, February 23, 2011/Notices) to announce the 
availability of the Draft SEIS and public comment period on February 
23, 2011. In addition, the Draft SEIS NOA was also published in the San 
Francisco Chronicle and Oakland Tribune newspapers; mailed to agencies 
and interested members of the public; and posted to the DoN BRAC PMO 
Web site (http://www.bracpmo.navy.mil).
    Copies of the Draft SEIS were circulated for review and comment to 
government agencies, local organizations, Native American tribes, and 
interested members of the public. The Draft SEIS was also made 
available at seven public locations, including six public libraries and 
the City Planning Department. Electronic copies were also posted to the 
DoN BRAC PMO Web site for download.
    The Draft SEIS was available for a 45-day public review period that 
began on February 23, 2011 and ended on May 6, 2011. A public hearing 
was conducted during the review period at the Southeast Community 
Facility, Alex L. Pitcher Community Room, 1800 Oakdale Avenue, San 
Francisco, CA 94124 on March 15, 2011, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. The DoN 
considered all public comments received on the Draft SEIS and the Final 
SEIS has been revised, as appropriate, in response to all public 
comments. All Draft SEIS comments and the DoN responses are included in 
the Final SEIS.
    The Final SEIS has been distributed to various Federal, State, 
local agencies, and Native American tribes, as well as other interested 
individuals and organizations. In addition, copies of the Final SEIS 
have been distributed and are available at the following libraries and

    This NOA initiates a 30-calender day wait period and public review 
period for the Final SEIS, beginning the date that this NOA is 
published in the Federal Register. Federal, State, and local agencies, 
as well as interested members of the public, are invited and encouraged 
to review the Final SEIS during this 30-calendar day period. During 
this time no federal decision on the proposed action shall be made or 
recorded. Following the 30-day wait/review period, per CEQ Regulations 
for Implementing NEPA, Sec. 1506.10(b)2, the DoN may make a decision on 
the proposed action and a ROD could be issued, completing the NEPA 
process. Following the DoN decision on the federal action and signature 
of the ROD, the DoN will publish a NOA for the ROD in the Federal 
Register and the San Francisco Chronicle and Oakland Tribune 
newspapers; NOAs will be mailed to government agencies, local 
organizations, Native American tribes, and interested members of the 
public; and posted to the Navy BRAC PMO Web site.
