Notice of availability for comment of an environmental assessment


Building 1 (Administration/Education Building) and Building 2 (Gymnasium)and Building 5 (Cafeteria) at the Gulfport JCC, originally built as the 33rd Avenue High School, were completed in 1954 and are considered eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). These buildings (Buildings 1, 2, and 5) sustained extensive damage during Hurricane Katrina and have not been rehabilitated. The Gulfport JCC has been operating at reduced student capacity in the remaining three buildings and eight modular buildings. DOL proposes to redevelop the Gulfport Job Corps Center (JCC) so that it can provide training for the 280-student capacity for which it was originally designed.
