Abstract : This Environmental Assessment (EA) was prepared to evaluate impacts of the Navy's proposed action to lease to the City of Seattle (City) for immediate use approximately 136 acres (55 hectares) of the former Naval Station Puget Sound, Sand Point. The Naval Station closed in September 1995, and the Navy proposes to lease part of the facility on an interim basis before final disposition of the property. The purpose of the interim lease is to support local redevelopment in obtaining funds for homeless assistance, put unused Navy property to productive use as quickly as possible, support the Seattle School District's space requirement for the temporary relocation of Ballard High School, and reduce the Navy's caretaker costs. Under the interim lease, proposed uses by the City include low-income housing, community college classrooms, utility upgrades, training and administration, a senior center, and outdoor recreation. To accommodate the proposed uses, the City intends to rehabilitate and use Buildings 224, 26N, 26S, 330, 331, 332 for housing. Buildings 9,18, and 47 are to be rehabilitated and used as temporary educational facilities. Building 5 would be used for vocational training, offices, and storage. Building 138 would be used as a temporary site project office, Building 67 for fire department training, and Building 406 for senior center activities. Building 222 would be demolished. Baseball fields would be improved and used for summer league play. Infrastructure, which includes water, sewer, drainage, electrical, natural gas, and telephone, would be upgraded as appropriate.
