Environmental Assessment for Sunset Beach Fire Station No.2, Town of Sunset Beach, Sunset Beach, North Carolina (November 2010)

The Town of Sunset Beach has experienced both population and geographic growth within the last decade. This has included an annexation in July 2007 that comprised 530 acres, and an estimated population increase of 947 residents to the Town. In addition to population and area increases, significant commercial growth has been occurring, including tourist-related entities. The construction of Fire Station No. 2 would allow the Town to provide improved emergency response service to the rapidly growing section of the Town. This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the President's Council on Environmental Quality regulations to implement NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations Parts 1500- 1508), and FEMA's regulations implementing NEPA (44 CFR Part 10).
