Equal weight will be given to oral and written statements. For Mailing Written Comments and Further Information Contact: NBC Coastal Campus EIS Project Manager (Attn: Ms. Teresa Bresler), 2730 McKean Street, Building 291, San Diego, California 92136. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A Notice of Intent to prepare this Draft EIS was published in the Federal Register on June 29, 2012 (77 FR 38781). Scoping meetings were held on July 17 and 18, 2012. The scoping period concluded on August 14, 2012, following a 15-day extension of the scoping period that was announced on July 31, 2012 (77 FR 45345). Comments received during the public scoping period were considered during preparation of the Draft EIS. The proposed NBC Coastal Campus would involve the construction, operation, and maintenance of an academic campus at Silver Strand Training Complex-South (SSTC-South), San Diego, California. The proposed campus would be comprised of 1.5 million square feet of space to include a mix of instructional and administrative facilities supporting logistics, operations, training, and administration. Implementation of the proposed action would occur over a 10year period. The purpose of this action is to: (1) Provide logistics and operational support buildings, classrooms, storage and administrative facilities to accommodate growth of NSWC on the west coast; and, (2) maintain Congressionally-mandated increased training and operational readiness requirements for NSWC. However, the current NSWC operational support, classroom and tactical skills instruction and administrative facilities, primarily VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:34 Jul 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 located at Naval Amphibious Base (NAB) Coronado, are inadequate to meet mission requirements. Moreover, expansion potential at that location is limited. Therefore, the proposed action would meet the needs of NSWC by optimizing the use of space within the existing NBC footprint, thereby allowing NSWC to support fluctuating organizational structure and mandated mission requirements. In addition to the no action alternative, three development alternatives are evaluated in the Draft EIS. Alternative 1 (SSTC-South Bunker Demolition Alternative) would consolidate NSWC facilities at one location on SSTC-South. This alternative would include design and construction of logistical support buildings, equipment use and maintenance training facilities, classroom and tactical skills instruction buildings, storage and administrative facilities, utilities, fencing, roads, and parking. A new controlled entry point would provide immediate access to/ from State Route 75 and a historic bunker would be demolished to facilitate campus construction. Alternative 2 (SSTC-South Bunker Retention Alternative) would include all the components of Alternative 1 within the same footprint but would include retention of the historic bunker, thereby resulting in a smaller developable footprint. Alternative 3 (MultiInstallation Alternative) would site necessary NSWC facilities at more than one location to include NAB Coronado and Naval Air Station North Island, in addition to SSTC-South. This alternative would include retention of the historic bunker similar to Alternative 2. The Draft EIS contains a comprehensive analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the Proposed Action, including impacts on land use and recreation, geology and soils, air quality, hazardous materials and waste, water quality and hydrology, noise, biological resources, cultural resources, traffic and circulation, socioeconomics and environmental justice, public health and safety, utilities and public services, coastal uses and resources, and aesthetics. The Draft EIS was distributed to Federal, state, and local agencies, elected officials, and other interested individuals and organizations. Copies of the Draft EIS are available for public review at the following libraries: 1. Coronado Public Library, 640 Orange Avenue, Coronado, California 92118. 2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A Notice of Intent to prepare this Draft EIS 
was published in the Federal Register on June 29, 2012 (77 FR 38781). 
Scoping meetings were held on July 17 and 18, 2012. The scoping period 
concluded on August 14, 2012, following a 15-day extension of the 
scoping period that was announced on July 31, 2012 (77 FR 45345). 
Comments received during the public scoping period were considered 
during preparation of the Draft EIS.
    The proposed NBC Coastal Campus would involve the construction, 
operation, and maintenance of an academic campus at Silver Strand 
Training Complex-South (SSTC-South), San Diego, California. The 
proposed campus would be comprised of 1.5 million square feet of space 
to include a mix of instructional and administrative facilities 
supporting logistics, operations, training, and administration.

    The purpose of this action is to: (1) Provide logistics and 
operational support buildings, classrooms, storage and administrative 
facilities to accommodate growth of NSWC on the west coast; and, (2) 
maintain Congressionally-mandated increased training and operational 
readiness requirements for NSWC. However, the current NSWC operational 
support, classroom and tactical skills instruction and administrative 
facilities, primarily located at Naval Amphibious Base (NAB) Coronado,

potential at that location is limited. Therefore, the proposed action 
would meet the needs of NSWC by optimizing the use of space within the

    In addition to the no action alternative, three development 
alternatives are evaluated in the Draft EIS. Alternative 1 (SSTC-South

environmental impacts of the Proposed Action, including impacts on land 
use and recreation, geology and soils, air quality, hazardous materials 
and waste, water quality and hydrology, noise, biological resources, 
cultural resources, traffic and circulation, socioeconomics and 
environmental justice, public health and safety, utilities and public 
services, coastal uses and resources, and aesthetics.
