As part of the 2012 EA process, the NPS selected Alternative 1for implementation. The selected alternative is the refinement of a concept design chosen through a design competition that was conducted by the Government of Ukraine. It evolved through coordination with NCPC, CFA, and the DC SHPO. The Memorial will be located on a 3,118-square foot site, located south of Massachusetts Avenue, NW, west of North Capitol Street, and north of F Street, NW in Washington, DC. The overall site plan will include the Memorial sculpture and plaza, landscaping, interpretation, and widening of the public sidewalk.
The impacts that will result from the selected alternative will not impair any park resources and values. This determination is based on the information gathered and the knowledge gained in considering this proposal through both this EA and also the first (2008) EA, which served as a foundation to this EA. The selected alternative does not constitute an action that normally requires preparation of an EIS; it will not have a significant effect on the human environment. Negative environmental impacts that could occur are negligible to moderate in intensity. There are no significant impacts on cultural or historic resources or visitor use and experience. The proposed action will not cause highly uncertain or controversial impacts, unique or unknown risks, or significant cumulative effects. Implementation of the selected alternative will not violate any federal, state, or local environmental protection law. Based on the foregoing, an EIS is not required for this action and thus will not be prepared. Based on the findings of the 2012 EA, as well as all of the previous planning that has occurred, including the 2008 Site Selection EA, this is a finding of no significant impact.
