In collaboration with the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership, the National Park Service prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement in accordance with section 102(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. NPS received approximately 100 written comments and held 8 formal public meetings during the 60-day public comment period on the Draft EIS. The comments from individuals and public agencies did not require the NPS to add additional alternatives, significantly alter existing alternatives, or make changes to the impact analysis of the effects of any alternative. Therefore, an abbreviated format is used for the responses to comments in the Final EIS, in compliance with the 1978 implementing regulations (40 CFR 1503.4[c]) for National Environmental Policy Act.
