The elements of VirutalNEPATM can apply to a variety of project sizes. Interactive commenting and document management can be leveraged for small, local projects and large, complex projects that require an Environmental Impact Statement.


 

Local and Small-Scale Actions

  • Community Associations & Intergovernmental Coordination - Portal to post, file, and view meeting information, previous agenda items and summary notes, recent news, and photos.
  • Small-Scale Actions requiring a Categorical Exclusion (CE) - Portal to share project information, file documentation, and access DMP and Interactive GIS Map.

Sample Project:

Categorical Exclusion for the construction of speed-bumps on a county road.
