(SR500A) Intergrating NEPA and Permitting

Seminar Start Date:

5/24/2017 11:00 AM

Seminar End Time:

5/24/2017 1:00 PM




Most projects administered by local governments, tribes, and federal land management agencies are documented Categorical Exclusions. The purpose of this webinar is to share ideas and practical measures for concurrent NEPA and permitting reviews when projects do not fall in the category of an EA or EIS.
In this presentation, we'll consider:
• Can the NEPA and Permitting process be scalable for projects with Categorical Exclusions?
• What would an agency need to consider when beginning to establishing a process—is it formal or informal?
• How can bundling projects help deliver projects faster?
• How can relationship building help to streamline the process with agency partners?
If you find yourself wondering about these questions, then the strategies presented in this webinar will help you maximize the benefits of partnering with agencies early in the project development stage.
Presenters of the webinar will include Mike Ruth, of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) EDC Team,  David Cremer (FHWA’s Federal Lands Highway (FLH) Tribal Transportation Program), George Visio (Jicarilla Apache Nation), Katherine Chesick (City of Seattle  NEPA/SEPA Permits Coordinator),  and Kevin Rose (FHWA FLH Environmental Team Leader).
