U.S. Park Police Hl Stables on the National Mall Redevelopment Floodplains statement of Finding


The National Park Service (NPS) is developing a design for the redevelopment of the United States Park Police (USPP) HI Stables (the proposed project) on the National Mall in Washington, DC. The approximately 3.3-acre project area is located on the National Mall between the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the DC War Memorial and is bound by Ash Road to the north and the sidewalk parallel to Independence Avenue to the south. The project site is developed, and includes the existing H l Stables facility, water treatment plan, administration facilities, and parking lot. The project site is surrounded by a wooded area known as Ash Woods to the south, west, and east. Portions of the project area are located within the 100-and 500-year floodplain

The NPS has explored other locations for the stables, but ultimately determined that redeveloping the existing site would be needed. In 1980, a study evaluated the potential alternative locations for the stables, and concluded that the existing site proposed for redevelopment along the National Mall is the most appropriate location. The National Capital Planning Commission and the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts reviewed this analysis and accepted its findings. The NPS reevaluated the location of the stables during its 2010 planning process for the National Mall Plan. This document specifically calls for the redevelopment of the stables at its existing site. Other sites were dismissed because they did not meet the operational requirements of the USPP or would result in more intense impacts on natural and cultural resources.
