Notice of Public Meeting, 16871 [2017-06861]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 65 / Thursday, April 6, 2017 / Notices mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES required by the National Defense Authorization Act of 2015. DOS, in coordination with U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, the National Capital Planning Commission, The District of Columbia Historic Preservation Office, and District of Columbia Department of Transportation, then developed Alternative 7. Alternative 7 and the No Action Alternative were retained for detailed study within the SDEIS. Alternative 7 would provide up to 15 lots for chancery development, retain the historic Memorial Chapel building for adaptive reuse, and potentially retain other buildings for adaptive reuse, depending on marketability. Dahlia Street and 14th Street would be developed as connections to the surrounding neighborhoods. The existing historic perimeter fence along 16th Street and Alaska Avenue would remain. The existing landscape on the western boundary of the site would be enhanced to create a 50-foot vegetated buffer, maximizing the tree canopy in that area. Access to individual lots would be internal to the former WRAMC campus. The No Action Alternative was included to provide a basis for comparison to the action alternative described above as required by the NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1002.14(d)). After careful consideration of the alternatives developed in response to the study’s purpose and needs and in coordination with jurisdictional and interested agencies, DOS has identified Alternative 7 as its Preferred Action Alternative because it best satisfies the study purpose and needs, would fulfill their statutory mission and responsibilities, and has the least adverse environmental impact. Public Comment/Distribution You are encouraged to become involved in this process and provide your comments or concerns about the proposed project. The public comment period provides the public with an opportunity to present comments regarding the content and findings of the SDEIS for the Foreign Missions Center at the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center. The SDEIS is available to the public at the Web site: http:// www.state.gov/ofm/property/fmc/ index.htm. The DOS sends information related to this environmental review to individuals, organizations, and government entities interested in and/or potentially affected by the proposed project and maintains a distribution list for this purpose. The distribution list includes: Federal, state, and local government representatives and agencies; elected officials; VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:51 Apr 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 environmental and public interest groups; other interested parties; and local libraries and newspapers. Copies are being distributed for public review at the Advisory Neighborhood Commission 4A and 4B offices, the Juanita E. Thornton-Shepherd Park Library, the Takoma Park Neighborhood Library, and the Petworth Neighborhood Library. DOS invites individuals, organizations and agencies to submit comments.
