Notice of availability.
The U.S. Army, with cooperation from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), announces the availability of the ROD for the Real Property Master Plan (RPMP) and the Real Property Start Printed Page 62567Exchange at Camp Parks. The ROD selects the Accelerated Modernization Alternative, under which the construction of new facilities and ranges included in the RPMP would be partially funded using the value of the land exchange (180 acres of the southern cantonment area) from Federal to private ownership. The remainder of RPMP construction at Camp Parks would be programmed as military construction projects. NASA's in-holding would be sold and proceeds of the sale would be used at its NASA-Ames Research Center, Moffett Field. This decision will speed the replacement of antiquated facilities and infrastructure on Camp Parks.
