The Department of the Navy Navy has prepared this Environmental Assessment EA to evaluate the potential environmental effects associated with the proposed construction and operation of a new Navy Exchange Command NEXCOM Navy Lodge at Seaplane Base, Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island NASWI, Island County, Washington. The proposed Navy Lodge is needed to accommodate increased demand at the NASWI for Navy Lodge facilities. Existing facilities at NASWI have an inadequate number of units to meet current and projected needs and were originally built as temporary facilities only. The Proposed Action would include constructing and operating a 2-story, 50-unit Navy Lodge, with lobby, front desk, offices, housekeeping space, guest laundromat, vending area, utility rooms, playground, and landscaped grounds. A 63-stall parking lot with access to East Coral Sea Avenue would also be built. Potential future lodge expansion may include up to 22 additional units, bringing the total number of units to 72 and 21 additional parking stalls. Each Navy Lodge unit would include living, dining, and sleeping areas kitchenette and private bath. Upon completion of the 50-unit Navy Lodge construction, the existing Navy Lodge, consisting of 24 mobile home units on the Seaplane Base tarmac, would be sold and removed, utilities servicing these units would be capped, and the tarmac would be restored by NEXCOM and NASWI. Construction of the proposed Navy Lodge would begin during the fall of 1999 the Navy Lodge would be opened in the fall of 2000.
