Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (Public Law [Pub. L.] 91-190, 42 United States Code [U.S.C.] 4321- 4347), as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations implementing NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Parts 1500-1508), the Department of the Navy (DoN) has prepared and filed the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate the potential human and natural environmental consequences of the disposal of surplus property at Naval Station (NAVSTA) Newport, Rhode Island, by the Navy and its subsequent redevelopment by the respective municipalities in which the surplus property is geographically located. Public Law 101-510, the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990, as amended in 2005 (BRAC Law), has directed the Navy to realign NAVSTA Newport. As a result of this action, the Navy has declared approximately 158 acres of land area at NAVSTA Newport to be surplus to the needs of the federal government. With the filing of the Draft EIS, the DoN is initiating a 45-day public comment period and has scheduled two public open house meetings to provide information and receive written comments on the Draft EIS. Federal, state, and local elected officials and agencies and the public are encouraged to provide written comments.
