Event: PUBLIC SCOPING PERIOD FOR AN ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT FOR THE PROPOSED CONVEYANCE OF LAND AT THE HANFORD SITE
Category: Public Comment Periods
Event Date: 09/19/2012 - 10/19/2012
 


The U.S. Department of Energy - Richland Operation Office (DOE-RL) is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to assess the potential environmental impacts of conveying approximately 1,641 acres of Hanford Site land to a local economic development organization.  The term “convey” means potential transfer, lease, easement or similar actions.  The land under consideration is designated for industrial uses in the Hanford Site Comprehensive Land Use Plan. 

The Tri-City Development Council (TRIDEC), a DOE designated Community Reuse Organization and 501 (c)(6) nonprofit corporation, submitted a proposal to DOE requesting the transfer of approximately 1,641 acres of land located in the southeastern corner of the Hanford Site near the City of Richland. The TRIDEC proposal identifies possible uses of the land as warehousing and distribution; research and development; technology manufacturing; food processing and agriculture and business services. 

DOE invites public input on the scope of the Hanford Site Land Conveyance EA.  A 30-day public scoping period will run from September 19 through October 19, 2012.  A public scoping meeting will be October 10, 2012 at the Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Drive, Richland, Washington.   The meeting will include an open house from 5:30-6:30 and project overview presentation at 6:30, followed by a question-and-answer period and opportunity for individuals to give formal written or oral comments.

Scoping comments may be submitted by regular mail and addressed to:  Paula Call, NEPA Document Manager, U.S. Department of Energy-Richland Operations Office, P.O. Box 550, MSIN A2-15, Richland, WA 99352.  Scoping comments may also be sent to landconveyanceEA@rl.doe.gov
