VA West Los Angeles PEIS
Client: Department of Veteran’s Affairs
In 2016, the VA developed a Draft Master Plan to guide the redevelopment of the 388-acre West Los Angeles (WLA) Campus with a focus on providing supportive housing for homeless and at-risk veterans. To assist the VA in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Awen developed a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) that analyzed the potential environmental, cultural, socioeconomic and cumulative impacts of the proposed improvements and alternatives for redevelopment for the WLA Campus.
Awen supported the VA in all aspects of NEPA compliance, including scoping, development of in-depth studies on biological resources, traffic, utilities and cultural resources, consultation with federal, state and local agencies, facilitation of public hearings and development of a final record of decision.
