Timber Point EA

Timber Point EA by Steve NorrisWe are working on an environmental assessment to assist the refuge in making decisions about the structures at Timber Point. We are required to take this step by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

The Process:

So far, we have led a guided tour of the buildings and held a public open house in July 2013.  The public scoping and related comment period ended August 31, 2013.

We will draft the environmental assessment (EA) which will contain the need for the proposal, alternatives to the proposal, the environmental impacts of the proposed action and alternatives. Learn more about the NEPA process here.

There will be an opportunity to review the assessment and provide comments when the EA is complete. We intend to reach a decision about the future use of the buildings in December 2014.
