Cameron Parish Library and Genealogy Museum, Change of Location/Consolidation, Cameron Parish, Louisiana (May 2012)
A disaster declaration (FEMA-1607-DR-LA) on 9/24/2005. The Main Cameron Library (Cameron Library) and the Cameron Genealogy Museum/Library (Cameron Genealogy Museum) provided library and other community services such as internet access, meeting spaces, interlibrary loans, and public notices. These facilities and their contents were destroyed as a result of the declared event and FEMA has deemed them eligible for replacement. Per 44 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) for FEMA, Subpart B, Section 10.9, an Environmental Assessment (EA) is being prepared pursuant to Section 102 of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as implemented by the regulations promulgated by the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508). This EA will determine if the proposed reconstruction and change of location of the Cameron Library and Cameron Genealogy Museum will have the potential for significant adverse effects on the quality of the human and natural environment. The results of this EA will be used to make a decision whether to initiate preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement or to prepare a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).
