Corps Seeks Input on Craney Expansion
July 13, 2009

According to information available from the US Army Corps of EngineersĀ® Norfolk District, they want to hear from the public concerning a June 2009 supplement to previously published information on the Craney Island Eastward Expansion project. The Corp originally published a Final Environmental Impact Statement, or FEIS, in 2006, concerning the proposed 580-acre expansion and development of a container terminal, and the assistant secretary of the Army issued a record of decision in 2007.

The most recent document, known as an Environmental Assessment Supplement, addresses information that was not known and could not be known when officials finalized the original EIS, said Craig Seltzer, Ecosystem Biologist. An electronic version of the Environmental Assessment Supplement with all appendices is available online.

The Norfolk District accepts public comments until July 27, 2009. Address comments to Craig Seltzer (Re: Craney Island Environmental Assessment) U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, 803 Front Street, Norfolk, VA 23510.
