GSA will host a public meeting

In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) will host a public meeting to support an Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed modernization and expansion project of the Land Port of Entry in Norton, Vermont. It is scheduled for Tuesday, January 30, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Norton town office at 12, Route 114. A presentation will start at 6 p.m. when GSA will provide project information. The public will be able to hear about the project and learn how they can provide input. GSA will use this step to determine the scope and content of the Environmental Impact Statement. Funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the proposed project will increase inspection and operational capabilities and modernize the port to meet federal inspection facility requirements. The Norton project will incorporate sustainability features to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase resilience to climate change. It’s also hoped this project will strengthen the relationship between the communities of Norton, Vt and Stanhope, Quebec, Canada.:
