Central Apartments and Multi-Purpose Academic Building (MPAC)
United States Army Garrison
West Point, New York
A Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) was prepared addressing the proposed demolition of the Central Apartments Building, use of the site for construction staging, and future construction of the Multi-Purpose Academic Building on the grounds of the U.S. Army Garrison at West Point, located in Orange County, New York.  The following is a summary of the findings included in the EA:
I.          NAME OF ACTION

II.        DESCRIPTION OF ACTION
a)         Proposed Action:  The purpose of the proposed action is to 1) demolish the Central Apartments Building, an aging, deteriorating structure currently unused because of its condition and size, 2) provide a site for use in construction staging to support multiple ongoing and future projects including the construction of a new and updating of the old Cadet Barracks at the U.S. Army Garrison at West Point, and 3) co-locate the engineering learning and laboratory resources into a Multi-Purpose Academic Facility (MPAC) that supports the program and provides space for anticipated new functions.
b) Alternatives:  Alternatives considered included: 1) No Action Alternative and 2) three MPAC design alternatives.  Four additional MPAC design alternatives were eliminated from further consideration based on siting, access, utilities, safety, flooding, and viewshed issues.  Two additional alternatives for the Central Apartments Building were eliminated from further consideration for financial reasons.  Six different staging area alternatives were considered but eliminated for access and traffic considerations.
III.       ANTICIPATED ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS
Potential environmental impact issues include, but are not limited to:  aesthetic and visual resources, geology and soils, air quality, cultural resources, utilities, and transportation issues.
