Description of Project:
The U.S. Department of the Army has submitted a draft installation master plan for Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall (JBM-HH). JBM-HH is composed of Fort Myer, Henderson Hall, and Fort McNair. JBM-HH was created from the administrative reorganization of the Fort Myer Military Community (Fort Myer and Fort McNair) and the Marine Corps installation at Henderson Hall as a result of Base Area Realignment and Closure (BRAC) 2005 recommendations. Fort Myer assumed installation management responsibilities, and an integration of some functions and services between Fort Myer and Henderson Hall, including security/force protection, utilities, parking, circulation and access points, housing, and recreation, have occurred to provide more efficient support of the on-Installation and regional populations.
Fort Myer and Henderson Hall are adjacent installations located in Arlington, Virginia, directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.; Fort McNair is located in Southwest Washington, D.C. at the confluence of the Washington Channel of the Potomac River and the Anacostia River.
As a result of the joint base reorganization, current land use planning at JBM-HH is conducted on a project by project basis for each installation based on its individual planning document. To address this issue, the installation developed an updated Real Property Master Plan (RPMP) to reflect the joint base designation of JBM-HH and to ensure that JBM-HH and its tenant organizations are able to perform their missions and assigned tasks. The RPMP provides a planning framework, tools, and direction to enable the utilization and development of the land within the Installation’s boundaries in a manner that allows the continued expansion of JBM-HH to maintain an organized, functional, and sustainable installation that balances regional and local natural and cultural resources with Installation operations. The RPMP documents the comprehensive planning process for JBM-HH through 2030 and is comprised of several components: the Long Range Component, the Capital Investment Strategy and Short Range Component, the Installation Design Guide, and the Real Property Master Plan Digest. In addition to these components, JBM-HH developed both a Programmatic Environmental Assessment (and associated Finding of No Significant Impact) and a Transportation Management Program Update for the master plan.
NCPC anticipates providing the Army with comments on the JBM-HH installation draft master plan at its May 2014 meeting. Following any revisions to the documents based on these comments, NCPC will use the master plan as a guide for future reviews of individual site and building projects at the installation
Members of the public as well as local and federal agencies are encouraged to submit written comments until April 11, 2014.
