Superintendent Patrick Reed announced today the next step toward completing the Green River Crossing Rehabilitation environmental assessment: a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Preferred Alternative has been signed by NPS Regional Director David Vela and is now posted online.
"This document completes the planning phase for rehabilitation of the Green River Crossing," said Reed. "We appreciate the public interest in this project and the comments that were received while we were working through the environmental assessment. We are seeking funding for implementation of the plans."
The environmental assessment examined three alternatives in detail, addressed the environmental impacts of each alternative, and identified a preferred alternative. The FONSI explains why the Selected Alternative (Alternative B) will have no significant effects on the human environment. It is based on the environmental assessment and the comments received from the public, agencies, and staff during the public review period, which concluded March 20, 2011. The FONSI summarizes the public comments received, lists the responses to those comments, and identifies the changes to the text as a result of the public and agency comments.
The FONSI for the Preferred Alternative is posted on NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment website (https://parkplanning.nps.gov/) and on the park website at www.nps.gov/maca/parkplanning.html. Hard copies are available for viewing at the park visitor center, the Edmonson County Public Library, 280 Ferguson Street, Brownsville, and at the Lincoln Volunteer Fire Hall, 8525 Nolin Dam Road.
