The facility, referred to as the CRC, would consolidate FBI’s records currently housed within the Washington DC area, in addition to field offices and information technology centers nationwide.

The center would accommodate 1,300 employees and 1,225 parking spaces. Three sites were considered for site selection. As part of the site selection process, GSA prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Record of Decision (ROD) completed in May 2007 for the selected alternative, the Sempeles Site. GSA continued with the procurement process, however was unable to successfully award a lease due to market conditions and the specialized nature of the facility. FBI then determined that the records storage piece of the project was the number one priority, and it was decided that the best way to move forward with meeting this mission critical function was through a federal construction funding request. The revised project requirements are now for an overall square footage of 256,425 gross square feet, to include the records storage building, support area, visitor’s screening facility, service center, and guard booth; parking would be at 427 spaces. Current Efforts: In 2014, federal funding was approved, and a notice was put out on FedBizOps for expressions of interest for sites at a minimum of 40 acres and a maximum of 108 acres. As a result of GSA’s and FBI’s evaluations, including environmental reconnaissance and application of site criteria, a short list of three (3) sites has been reached, one of which was in the 2007 EIS, the Sempeles Site, now referred to as Whitehall Commerce Center. The Supplemental Draft EIS will evaluate potential direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts from construction at the three site alternatives, as well as the no action alternative. Relevant and reasonable measures that could avoid or mitigate environmental effects will also be analyzed. Additionally, GSA will undertake any consultations required by applicable laws or regulations, including the National Historic Preservation Act. The Supplemental Draft EIS is being prepared to address changes to the proposed action that are relevant to environmental concerns, as required under NEPA (40 CFR 1502.9), and the following three sites will serve as alternatives: Alternative 1: Arcadia Route 50 Property, 2117 Millwood Pike, Winchester VA.

A public scoping period and public scoping meeting for the proposed action were held in January 2006. However, in light of the amount of time that has transpired, changes to project requirements, and new site alternatives, a public comment period will commence on the date of this notice and be open for 30 days to allow the public to submit comments concerning the project. Future notices will be published to announce the availability of the Supplemental Draft EIS and additional opportunities for public input.

of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Central Records Complex 
(CRC), in Winchester County, Virginia.

DATES: February 17, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Background: GSA began the site selection process for an 
approximately 100 acre site in Frederick County, Virginia in 2006 in 
order to procure via lease construction a central records storage 
facility for the FBI. The facility, referred to as the CRC, would 
consolidate FBI's records currently housed within the Washington DC 
area, in addition to field offices and information technology centers 
nationwide.
    The project requirements were 947,000 rentable square feet 
consisting of three buildings; an office building, a records storage 
facility, and a data center. The center would accommodate 1,300 
employees and 1,225 parking spaces. Three sites were considered for 
site selection. As part of the site selection process, GSA prepared an 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Record of Decision (ROD) 
completed in May 2007 for the selected alternative, the Sempeles Site. 
GSA continued with the procurement process, however was unable to 
successfully award a lease due to market conditions and the specialized 
nature of the facility.
    FBI then determined that the records storage piece of the project 
was the number one priority, and it was decided that the best way to 
move forward with meeting this mission critical function was through a 
federal construction funding request. The revised project requirements 
are now for an overall square footage of 256,425 gross square feet, to 
include the records storage building, support area, visitor's screening 
facility, service center, and guard booth; parking would be at 427 
spaces.
    Current Efforts: In 2014, federal funding was approved, and a 
notice was put out on FedBizOps for expressions of interest for sites 
at a minimum of 40 acres and a maximum of 108 acres. As a result of 
GSA's and FBI's evaluations, including environmental reconnaissance and 
application of site criteria, a short list of three (3) sites has been 
reached, one of which was in the 2007 EIS, the Sempeles Site, now 
referred to as Whitehall Commerce Center.
    The Supplemental Draft EIS will evaluate potential direct, 
indirect, and cumulative impacts from construction at the three site 
alternatives, as well as the no action alternative. Relevant and 
reasonable measures that could avoid or mitigate environmental effects 
will also be analyzed. Additionally, GSA will undertake any 
consultations required by applicable laws or regulations, including the 
National Historic Preservation Act.
    The Supplemental Draft EIS is being prepared to address changes to 
the proposed action that are relevant to environmental concerns, as 
required under NEPA (40 CFR 1502.9), and the following three sites will 
serve as alternatives:
    Alternative 1: Arcadia Route 50 Property, 2117 Millwood Pike, 
Winchester VA.
    Alternative 2: Blackburn Limited Partnership, Apple Valley Road, 
Winchester, VA.
    Alternative 3: Whitehall Commerce Center, Route 669 & Route 11, 
Clear Brook, VA.
    The Supplemental Draft EIS will incorporate by reference and build 
upon the analyses presented in the 2007 Final EIS, and will document 
the Section 106 process under the National Historic Preservation Act of 
1966, as amended (36 CFR part 800).
    A public scoping period and public scoping meeting for the proposed 
action were held in January 2006. However, in light of the amount of 
time that has transpired, changes to project requirements, and new site 
alternatives, a public comment period will commence on the date of this 
notice and be open for 30 days to allow the public to submit comments 
concerning the project.
    Future notices will be published to announce the availability of 
the Supplemental Draft EIS and additional opportunities for public 
input.
    No decision will be made to implement any alternative until the 
NEPA process is completed and a Record of Decision is signed.
