The Army’s Base Realignment and Closure Office (U.S. Army) has prepared a Finding of Suitability to Transfer (FOST) to document the environmental suitability of certain parcels or property at the Pueblo Chemical Depot (PCD), specifically Parcel 1 (5,109.15 acres), for transfer to the Local Redevelopment Authority (LRA), the Pueblo Depot Activity Development Authority, also known as PuebloPlex, consistent with Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) Section 120(h) and Department of Defense (DOD) policy. In addition, the FOST includes the CERCLA Notice, Covenant, and Access Provisions and other Deed Provisions and the Environmental Protection Provisions (EPPs) necessary to protect human health and the environment after such transfer.
The federal surplus, Parcel 1 (the property), consists of approximately 5,109.15 acres, which includes 618 storage magazines (“igloos”), 23 miles of railroad tracks and approximately 23 buildings. None of the area is considered undisturbed land. The property was previously used as storage magazines, supply buildings and warehouses, recreational facilities, a helicopter pad, infrastructure maintenance facilities (water infrastructure), barracks, and a dining facility. The property is intended to be transferred as a mixed-use area and is consistent with the intended reuse of the property as set forth in the PuebloPlex Redevelopment Plan (2016).
The U.S. Army invites public comment on the Proposed Plan. Written or email comments will be accepted during a 30-day comment period starting March 30, 2023 and ending April 30, 2023.
