Recent events

Jan. 7, 2016: The comment period ended yesterday on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the FBI HQ Consolidation (one of three sites: Greenbelt Metro North Core).

CCRIC submitted comments, as well as the City of Greenbelt, addressing the Greenblt site in the comparison.

During the review of the DEIS it was noticed that GSA seems determined to protect the floodplain and stream as much as possible (required by law or presidential directives)--a fact that we acknowledge and endorse. The security perimeter fence is proposed to remain west of the stream channels and only minimal impacts may occur in wetland areas along the eastern perimeter of the FBI HQ campus site (the current Greenbelt Metro parking lot).
However, concerns remain as outlined in the comments from CCRIC that were compiled by Ben Fischler.
Many thanks do not only go to Ben, but also go to everyone who reviewed the DEIS on behalf of the Indian Creek watershed and assisted in the creation of the letter.
