Abstract : This statement assesses the potential environmental impacts from the reuse of Naval Station Sand Point located in Seattle, Washington. Two reuse plans and a No-action Alternative are evaluated. The reuse plans are the November 1993 Community Preferred Reuse Plan for Sand Point (City Plan) and the June 1993 Muckleshoot Indian Tribe Proposed Reuse Plan for the Naval Station Puget Sound, Sand Point (Muckleshoot Plan). The City Plan (152 acres/61.5 hectares) is the preferred alternative. Land uses proposed in the City Plan include arts, cultural activities, open space/recreation, education, community activities, housing, and institutional applications. Land uses proposed in the Muckleshoot Plan (152 acres/61.5 hectares) include recreation, education, administration, recreational commercial, warehousing, light industrial, and institutional. Under the No-action Alternative, the Navy would continue to be caretaker of the base, but there would be no use of the site. Although both reuse plans have the potential for significant impacts, appropriate mitigation measures by the reuser would reduce the impacts.
