VANCOUVER, Wash.Washington State University is updating its Vancouver campus master plan for future campus development and will prepare a draft of a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement to determine and address the environmental impacts associated with the updated master plan.

The statement assessed three scenarios for WSU Vancouver development and is now available for a 45-day period for review and comment by the public and agencies from Aug. 5 through Sept. 19. Copies of the SEIS draft are available for review during normal business hours at the WSU Vancouver Library, 14204 N.E. Salmon Creek Ave., and at two branches of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library, located at Three Creeks Community Library, 800-C Tenney Road, and Vancouver Community Library, 1007 East Mill Plain Blvd.

Copies of the SEIS draft can be purchased for about $45 at FedEx Kinko’s, 303 East 15th St., Vancouver. Copies of the technical appendix can be purchased for about $15.

An open house on the SEIS draft is scheduled for 5:30-7:30 p.m. Aug. 10 at the Vancouver campus in the Student Services Building, Room SS129. Members of the project team will be available to discuss the current campus master plan and SEIS draft, review the three alternatives and take comments. There will be no formal presentation.

Community involvement is part of WSU Vancouver’s good neighbor policy, and public input into the master plan update is valued.
