Appalachian Regional Commission Grant Proposal for Emory Valley Center

Anderson County, Tennessee

On March, 5 2015, TVA completed an environmental assessment (EA) and issued a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for a proposal to administer a $500,000 Appalachian Regional Commission grant to the Emory Valley Center (EVC) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The EVC is a non-profit agency that serves children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. With the grant and other funding, the EVC proposes to replace one of its current buildings with a new 37,250 square foot multi-purpose building adjacent to its other existing facilities. This would allow the EVC to consolidate its operations on a single site and expand its services.

In October 2015, TVA completed a supplemental environmental assessment (SEA) and issued a revised finding of no significant impact to document the potential environmental effects of EVC’s revised proposal of constructing the proposed multi-purpose building an adjacent 2.8-acre site.
