Fox CSG 1 LLC: Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE  Rural Development

AGENCY: Rural Development, Rural Business Service, USDA

ACTION: Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact.

SUMMARY: The Rural Development’s Rural Business Service (RD-RBS) has made a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) with respect to a request for possible financing assistance to Fox CSG 1 LLC for the construction of a 5 megawatt solar production facility in Chisago County, Minnesota

FURTHER INFORMATION: To obtain copies of the EA and FONSI, or for further information, contact: Ron Omann, State Environmental Coordinator, 375 Jackson Street, St. Paul, MN 55101, 651-602-7796, ron.omann@mn.usda.gov

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed project consists of the construction a five-megawatt solar production facility and alternatives considered by RD-RBS and Fox CSG 1 LLC include the No Action Alternative.  The alternatives are discussed in the Fox CSG 1 LLC EA. The RD-RBS has reviewed and approved the EA for the proposed project.

The availability of the EA for public review was announced via notice in the following newspaper: Chisago County Press on April 12 & April 19, 2018.  A 14-day comment period was announced in the newspaper notice(s). The EA was also available for public review at the USDA Rural Development office and no comments were received.

Based on its EA, commitments made by Fox CSG 1 LLC and public comments received, RD-RBS has concluded that the project would have no impact to water quality, wetlands, floodplains, land use, aesthetics, transportation, or human health and safety.

The proposed project will have no adverse effect on resources listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The Agency has also concluded that the proposed project is not likely to affect federally listed threatened and endangered species or designated critical habitat thereof. The proposed project would not disproportionately affect minority and/or low-income populations.

No other potential significant impacts resulting from the proposed project have been identified. Therefore, RD-RBS has determined that this FONSI fulfills its obligations under the National Environmental Policy Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR §§ 1500-1508), and USDA Rural Development's Environmental Policies and Procedures (7 CFR Part 1970) for its action related to the project.

RD-RBS is satisfied that the environmental impacts of the proposed project have been adequately addressed. RD-RBS’s federal action would not result in significant impacts to the quality of the human environment, and as such it will not prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for its action related to the proposed project.
