Proposed WNY Land Acquisition

Public Scoping Period

Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the Department of the Navy (DoN) has initiated an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate the potential environmental effects associated with the acquisition of land at the Southeast Federal Center (SEFC), for the Washington Navy Yard (WNY), Washington, D.C. The DoN is initiating a 30-day public scoping process to identify potential alternatives, information and analysis relevant to the proposed action, and to solicit input on specific resources and issues the public would like to see addressed in the EIS.

Concurrent with the NEPA public involvement process, the DoN is conducting National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106 consultations regarding potential effects of the Proposed Action on historic properties. The public will have the opportunity to participate in the Section 106 process through verbal comments presented during each of the two virtual public scoping meetings, written comments mailed via U.S. Postal Service, and electronic comments via email.

The 30-day public scoping period begins on February 18, 2022 and extends to March 21, 2022. Comments must be postmarked or submitted electronically via email no later than March 21, 2022 for consideration in the Draft EIS. Please see NEPA and NHPA Section 106 Fact Sheets for more information about the Proposed Action.  

The Navy held Virtual Public Scoping Meetings on Tuesday March 8, 2022 and Wednesday March 9, 2022. To watch the video of the presentation, click here
