U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is advising the public of the availability of a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) to address the potential effects, beneficial and adverse, resulting from the proposed construction, operation, and maintenance of an expanded U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) Station in Three Points, Arizona. The facility was originally designed to support 50 agents but is currently accommodating over 200 employees. The proposed expansion of the existing border patrol station (BPS) would be constructed to accommodate the current staffing with room for expansion in the future. The expanded BPS and associated supporting infrastructure will be designed for continuous operation in support of the Border Patrol Strategic Plan to gain and maintain effective control of the borders of the U.S.
CBP invites comments on the Draft EA during the 30-day public comment period beginning on August 23, 2023. You may submit comments to Mr. John Petrilla using only one of the following methods:
- By email to BPAMNEPA@cbp.dhs.gov; or
- By mail to: John Petrilla, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 24000 Avila Road, Suite 5020, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677
When submitting comments, please include your name and address, and identify your comments as for the Three Points Border Patrol Station Project. To ensure consideration, comments must be received by September 22, 2023. Once the final environmental and decision documents are complete, they will also be posted on this site.
