The NRC has received, by letter dated May 20, 2005, an application filed by R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant, LLC (Ginna LLC) requesting the release of a part of the site for unrestricted use at its Ginna Plant. Before approving the proposed partial site release, the NRC will need to determine that the licensee has met the criteria set forth in Section 50.83 of 10 CFR Part 50. The tract of land proposed for release consists of two adjacent parcels, comprising a total of approximately 15 acres located along the western edge of the Ginna Plant site boundary, and is entirely outside of the Exclusion Area.

The NRC had previously provided notice in the Federal Register on July 11, 2005 (70 FR 39802) to individuals in the vicinity of the facility that the NRC was in receipt of a proposed request release of the part of the site and would accept written comments concerning this proposal by August 10, 2005. Furthermore, the NRC stated that, before acting upon this request, it would also conduct a public meeting in the vicinity of the Ginna Plant for the purpose of obtaining public comments. The NRC will consider and, if appropriate, respond to these written and verbal comments, but such comments will not otherwise constitute part of the decisional record. Comments received after the public meeting will be considered if practicable to do so, but only those comments received on or before the public meeting can be assured consideration.

Documents related to this action, including the application for approval and supporting documentation, are available for public inspection at the NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland.
