Abstract: This Supplemental EA relates to a portion of Lake Lanier Islands Resort, which has been selected as the location for a public safety facility and dockside restaurant. Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3 identify the location of the property that is the subject of this Supplemental EA and are included in Appendix A. This Supplemental EA and associated proposed Master Plan have been prepared in accordance with SAMDR 1110-1-3 and the requirements of NEPA. Despite being able to exercise its own police powers, the Lake Lanier Islands Development Authority has chosen to receive police protection through state and local authorities and allow local authorities to access the lake through Lake Lanier Islands for water patrolling and emergency response. This EA is intended to address the proposed multi-jurisdictional public safety facility that has been designed to fill the need of Hall County to increase response times to incidents occurring on the southern half of Lake Lanier and to aid in patrolling congested areas of Lake Lanier. This EA has also been prepared to address the proposed future dockside restaurant, approved in the 1997 Master Plan, but not constructed. The proposed action generally proposes the addition of a public safety facility which includes an approximate 19,000 square-foot building occupied by precincts for Hall County Fire Services and its Underwater Search and Rescue Unit, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office and its Investigative and Recovery Unit and personnel with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Law Enforcement Division, enclosed docks and a boat house, and a helicopter pad for search and rescue by air. A future dockside restaurant, an outdoor dining area, paved parking, two additional docks, and a paved walking trail is also proposed. The intent of this EA is to assess potential environmental impacts from these proposed actions as further outlined below.
