PUBLIC SCOPING FOR NEW RECREATIONAL BEACH PROJECT CHINCOTEAGUE NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE & ASSATEAGUE ISLAND NATIONAL SEASHORE
 
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, and Federal Highway Administration are initiating an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze the site design plan for parking and access to the new recreational beach. The relocation of the recreational beach to a new location 1.5 miles north of the current recreational beach was identified and approved in the Final Comprehensive Conservation Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (CCP/EIS) for the Chincoteague and Wallops Island National Wildlife Refuges, dated October of 2015.Conceptual designs for the new beach parking areas and access have been developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service through a collaborative process involving local stakeholders including the Town of Chincoteague and Accomack County, Virginia. We are now seeking public comment on these conceptual designs of the new recreational beach, including access and parking areas.

As part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, we will host an informal open house on July 25-27, 2017, in the Herbert H. Bateman Educational and Administrative Center Classroom. Concept design exhibits will be on display.
