SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Navy, as lead agency, has prepared and filed the Draft SEIS for the Disposal and Reuse of HPS, San Francisco, California in accordance with the requirements of the NEPA of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and its implementing regulations (40 CFR parts 1500-1508). The Draft SEIS evaluates the potential environmental consequences associated with the disposal and reuse of HPS. The Draft SEIS is a supplement to the Navy's 2000 Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Disposal and Reuse of HPS (March 2000).

A NOA and NOPH for the Draft SEIS were published in the Federal Register on Wednesday, February 23, 2011 (Federal Register/Vol. 76, No. 36, Pages 10012-10014/Wednesday, February 23, 2011/Notices), to solicit comments on the Draft SEIS from Federal, State, and local agencies and interested members of the public. In response to requests from the EPA, the Navy is extending the public comment period for the Draft SEIS until Friday, May 6, 2011.

The purpose of the proposed action is the disposal of HPS from Federal ownership and its subsequent reuse by the County and City of San Francisco in a manner consistent with the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard Redevelopment Plan as developed by the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency in July 1997, and amended in August 2010. The Draft SEIS has identified and considered six reuse alternatives and a no action alternative. Navy disposal is assumed as part of each reuse alternative.

More information of the Draft SEIS can be found in the previously published NOA and NOPH (see Federal Register/Vol. 76, No. 36, Pages 10012-10014/Wednesday, February 23, 2011/Notices).Start Printed Page 21712
