Fort Hunt Park Site Development Plan EA/AoE
GWMP staff prepared an update newsletter overviewing the new alternative concepts and updates the public on the planning process and presented to the public in the summer of 2012. New alternative concepts presented saught to enhance visitor awareness and understanding of Fort Hunt Park's resources while also sustaining many of the park's existing recreational amenities.
Public comments have been analyized and a new Environmental Assessment is now being prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, (NEPA) and the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA), and other applicable laws, regulations and policies.
This project was initiated in late 2010, with public scoping conducted in early 2011 and an EA/AoE released for review in September 2011. Based on comments received during public review, GWMP determined that none of the previously considered alternatives will move forward as originally proposed. New alternative concepts have been drafted to reflect public comment received.
