The U.S. Army has prepared an Environmental Assessment that considers the proposed implementation of the Privatization of Army Lodging program at Fort Meade.

The proposed action would convey existing government-owned lodging facilities, one of which is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, and lease an undeveloped 15.5-acre parcel for the construction of a new 275-room hotel to a private-sector development company.

Implementation of the proposed action is not expected to result in significant environmental impacts. Therefore, preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act.

In accordance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, this 30-day comment period also will serve as the public's opportunity to review and comment on any effects this undertaking may have on Fort Meade historic properties that are on, or considered to be, eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.

Copies of the EA and draft Finding of No Significant Impact are available for review and comment online at ftmeade.army.mil and at Fort Meade's Medal of Honor Memorial Library and West County Area Library in Odenton.

Comments on the EA and draft FNSI should be submitted to Suzanne Teague, Directorate of Public Works, Environmental Division, 2212 Chisholm Ave., Suite 5115, Fort Meade, MD 20755, or by email to suzanne.m.teague.civ@mail.mil.

Comments must be received within 30 days.

Subject to review and consideration of comments submitted by individuals, organizations or agencies during the comment period, the Army plans to issue the final FNSI at the conclusion of the comment period and to proceed with the proposed action.
