Environmental Assessment for Public Review

Yosemite National Park announces the release of the Ansel Adams Gallery Buildings Rehabilitation Environmental Assessment (EA). The EA will be available for public review and comment from April 16, 2014 to May 16, 2014. The EA addresses the rehabilitation needs while retaining the historic integrity of the structures.


The park’s Preferred Alternative (Alternative 4) rehabilitates the Ansel Adams Gallery Complex using architectural and structural design tailored to improve building performance and retain historic integrity. To implement comprehensive seismic and structural strengthening and energy efficiencies, this alternative would preserve and repair certain historic materials and elements where feasible, and replace others in kind. The Preferred Alternative would provide reasonable accessibility, safety, site circulation, and drainage improvements while retaining the historic materials and features that characterize the property.


The Environmental Assessment also evaluates other alternatives including Alternative 2 (Conservation), Alternative 3 (Building Performance), Alternative 4 (Balanced Rehabilitation), and a No Action alternative.


A digital copy of the EA is available at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/AnselAdamsEA.

The preferred method for submitting comments is through PEPC at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/AnselAdamsEA. Printed and CD copies of the plan will be available upon request (in limited number) by emailing YOSE_Planning@nps.gov. Comments may also be submitted via postal service and postmarked by May 16, 2014 to: Superintendent, Yosemite National Park, Attn: Ansel Adams EA, PO Box 577, Yosemite, CA 95389.
