Abstract:

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 brought into prospective the need for consideration of environmental factors with regard to development actions on projects related to the federal government. The military facilities planner must have a working knowledge of the NEPA Act and all subsequent rules, regulations, and organizational supports pertinent in order to function effectively when planning the development of new or existing military enclaves. This research paper will review pertinent history, organizations, procedures, and judicial decisions which would have relevance to the development of major projects in general and then will review some the specific factors required to be addressed in an Environmental Impact Statement EIS for the Puget Sound Naval Task Force. Since Everett, Wa. was selected as the primary site for the homeport of the Task Force the research will concentrate on what impacts to the community will will occur for such a project within the immediate and surrounding Snohomish-King County area.
