Preparation of a Real Property Exchange Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), West Los Angeles, CA
The United States Army Reserve (USAR) will prepare an EIS to analyze the impacts of a real property exchange. This Real Property Exchange Program is conducted under the authority of 10 U.S.C. 18240, as amended. This legislation permits DoD to convey certain real property assets of reserve components to a State, local government, local authority, or private parties in exchange for land and real property improvements, existing and/or to be constructed, including utilities, equipment, and furnishings for the replacement facilities. Approximately 10 acres with two, two-story USAR Center buildings (Holderman and Munemori Halls) and a detached maintenance building will be exchanged for new construction or real property improvements at the USAR facilities located at (1) Bell; (2) Miramar Marine Corps Air Station, located in San Diego; and (3) March USAR Center located in Riverside. The exchange property being offered by the Federal Government for development by the private sector is located at the Southeast corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Federal Avenue in the Southwestern portion of Los Angeles County and is approximately 13 miles west of downtown Los Angeles. The parcel is bounded on all sided by the city of Los Angeles, and is centrally located in the western part of Los Angeles County. It is immediately surrounded by the communities of Westwood, Brentwood, Sawtelle, and West Los Angeles, which are all part of the city of Los Angeles. Additionally, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and Pacific Palisades are all within 5 miles of the subject property. The EIS will discuss in detail the 10-acre parcel to be exchanged and all reasonable alternatives including, but not limited to, the (1) No Action Alternative and (2) Army Exchange with Non-Governmental Development alternatives on the exchanged property. New construction or real property improvements that will occur at the three USAR facilities will be covered by separate National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation.
