Transfer of Land and Facilities within the East Tennessee Technology Park and Surrounding Area, Oak Ridge, Tennessee
The U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) has completed an Environmental Assessment (EA)(DOE/EA-1640) for the conveyance (lease, easement, and/or title transfer) of DOE property located at the East Tennessee Technology Park (ETTP) and surrounding area for mixed use economic development. Leases, easements, and/or title transfers could be entered into with the Community Reuse Organization of East Tennessee, city of Oak Ridge, other agencies, or private entities.
Based on the results of the analysis reported in the EA, DOE has determined that the proposed transfer of land and facilities within the ETTP is not a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment within the meaning of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969. Therefore, the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement is not necessary, and DOE is issuing this Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).
