CBP announces that a Final Supplemental Environmental Assessment (EA) and associated Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for a Permanent Air and Marine Operations (AMO) Facility in Sierra Vista, Arizona have been prepared and are now available for public review. The Final EA documents the potential environmental and socioeconomic effects associated with the construction, operation, and maintenance of a Permanent AMO Facility.
The Draft Supplemental EA was made available for a 30-day public review and comment period between 14 July 2021 and 13 August 2021. It was accessible through CBP.gov and by distribution to stakeholders and local public libraries. The notice of availability for the draft was published in the Herald Review on 14 July 2021.
Based on the Final EA, a determination was made that the proposed action will not significantly affect the human environment and that further analysis is not required. Therefore, a FONSI was issued, and an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required. For further information, contact Mr. John Petrilla by email at BPAMNEPA@cbp.dhs.gov.
