Jones Point Park Environmental Assessment, June 2007

The June 2007 Environmental Assessment (EA) presents a new preferred alternative (Alternative 4A) that ensures resource protection while balancing recreational values and interests. The new preferred alternative reflects public comment received during the Draft Environmental Assessment comment period beginning in August 2006. Alternative 4A features an access road that connects to a new cul-de-sac at the south end of Royal Street, and extends eastward to a 110-space parking area, and a vehicular turnaround located just west of the Potomac River. The cul-de-sac, perimeter barrier system, and landscape plantings to be located just south of the turnaround would be similar to Alternative 4. A tot-lot and an 80 x 40 yard multi-use field oriented east/west would be located north of the parking area. A 110 x 60 yard multi-use field oriented northwest/southeast would be located south of the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in a similar location as the existing field. Alternative 4A contains items common to the other action alternatives released in the first draft EA. This alternative modifies selected elements. Please refer to the Summary section in this EA for a table of substantive EA revisions to help you reference these changes.
