Draft Environmental Assessment for 2018 Hurricane Recapitalization of Station Fort Macon

The USCG proposes to construct a new Multi-Mission Station Facility to replace multiple onshore buildings at Station Fort Macon that were damaged during Hurricane Florence in September 2018. In addition to constructing a new facility, the USCG proposes to demolish existing hurricane-damaged facilities and permanently homeport an 87-foot coastal patrol boat (CPB) at Station Fort Macon. The Proposed Action is needed to address a shortfall in available functional and operational onshore facility space, as well as insufficient vessel basing, while meeting USCG mission and resiliency requirements. Comments on the Draft EA or inquiries regarding the document should be submitted during the 30-day comment period via postal mail or email to: Ron Baron U.S. Coast Guard 1240 E. 9th St, Room 2179 Cleveland, OH 44199 Ronald.J.Baron@uscg.mil
