Environmental Assessment (May 2012)
Finding of No Significant Impact
Notice of Availability

This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to support an application from the Samish Indian Nation (Samish Tribe) for land to be placed into federal trust (Proposed Action). The BIA is the federal agency charged with reviewing and approving tribal applications to take land into federal trust status. The project site, known as the “March’s Point Property,” consists of approximately 3.3 acres in the City of Anacortes, Skagit County, Washington. The fee-to-trust acquisition and subsequent development is intended to be used for a gas station and convenience store (Proposed Project). The BIA will use this EA to determine if the Proposed Action would result in an adverse effect to the environment.
