Draft Environmental Impact Statement

Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality, the Navy has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS) for the Navy Old Town Campus (OTC) Revitalization. The Draft EIS evaluates the potential environmental effects associated with modernization of OTC to support Naval Information Warfare Systems Command’s (NAVWAR) current and future operational readiness.

A notice was published in the Federal Register on May 14, 2021 announcing the public review and comment period, dates of virtual meetings, and includes information on how the public may review and comment on the Draft EIS. Additionally, the public can submit comments on the project’s potential to affect historic properties pursuant to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

The comment period for the Draft EIS is May 14, 2021 - July 13, 2021

Due to current federal and state guidance on social distancing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Navy will hold virtual public meetings to provide information about the proposed action and the draft environmental analysis, and to accept public comments on the Draft EIS.
