The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), San Francisco VA Medical Center (SFVAMC) announces the availability of the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS) for the Long Range Development Plan (LRDP), for public comment pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4331 et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Requirements of NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500- 1508), VA's implementing Regulations (38 CFR part 26), as well as the settlement agreement resulting from Planning Association for the Richmond, et al v. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, C-06-02321-SBA (filed 6 June 2008). VA supplemented the draft EIS originally released in August 2012 to account for design and project phasing changes from the LRDP released in 2012 to the LRDP released in 2014. Both versions of the LRDP describe development and construction of patient care buildings, research buildings, business occupancy buildings, and parking structures, as well as retrofitting seismically deficient buildings. The SDEIS identifies and addresses environmental impacts associated with the Proposed Action.
