AGENCY:

ACTION:

Notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Assessment, request for comments on Environmental Issues, and Notice of Public Scoping Meeting.

SUMMARY:

The General Services Administration (GSA) will prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) that will analyze and discuss the environmental impacts of renovations of the Charles F. Prevedel Federal Building and demolition of buildings 100, 101, and 102 at the Federal Records Center, Page Complex, located in Overland, Missouri. Through the project, GSA proposes to relocate Federal tenants into the Charles F. Prevedel Federal Building. The Page Federal Complex is located at 9700 Page Blvd., Overland, Missouri, which is in Missouri's 1st Congressional District.

In the EA, GSA will discuss impacts that could occur as a result of the construction and operation of the proposed project. GSA will also evaluate the “No Action” and other reasonable alternatives to the proposed project, or portions of the project, and consider how to lessen or avoid impacts on the various resource areas.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

General: This EA is being prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act, 42 U.S.C. 4321 (NEPA), and regulations implementing NEPA issued by the Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR 1500-1508), GSA ADM 1095.1, the GSA PBS NEPA Desk Guide and other applicable regulations and policies. The EA will inform GSA in its decision-making process. Compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), including NHPA Section 106, and other laws and requirements, will be coordinated with this EA process, and government agencies that are affected by the proposed actions or have special expertise will be consulted. An independent analysis of the issues will be presented in the EA. The EA will be placed in the public record and a comment period will be allotted on the Draft EA. GSA will consider all comments on the EA before making a final decision.

Purpose of Notice: The purpose of this notice is to (1) Announce GSA's intent to prepare an EA; (2) announce the initiation of the public scoping process; (3) invite public participation during the scoping process and at the public scoping meeting; and (4) request public comments on the scope of the EA, including the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed action.

Further Information on Public Participation and Dates: The public is encouraged to provide GSA with specific comments or concerns about the project. Comments should focus on the potential environmental effects, reasonable alternatives, and measures to avoid or lessen environmental impacts.

In addition to the above methods for submission of comments, those interested may also file a paper copy of comments, by regular mail, to Jeremiah Nelson, GSA Region 6 NEPA Coordinator, 1500 E. Bannister Road, Room 2135, Kansas City, Missouri 64131 or verbally offer comments to GSA's Region 6 NEPA Coordinator by calling (816) 823-5803. Again, comments should be sent to GSA on or before March 17, 2011. With any comments, before including address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, be advised that the entire comment, including personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask in your comment to withhold from public review personal identifying information, GSA cannot guarantee that it will be able to do so.

Finally, in lieu of or in addition to sending written comments, GSA also invites you to attend the public scoping meeting scheduled and discussed in the body of this notice, above. Comments made at the public scoping meeting will also be considered in the EA process.

State and local government representatives are asked to notify their constituents of this planned project and encourage them to comment on their areas of concern.

A fact sheet prepared by GSA will be made available at the Public Scoping Meeting and will be posted to a GSA Project Web site (http://www.gsa.gov/​r6news), thereafter.
