Election To Proceed Under New Statutory Procedures

    Subsequently, the Base Closure Community Redevelopment and Homeless

of this statute gives the redevelopment authority at base closure sites
the option of proceeding under new procedures with regard to the manner
in which the redevelopment plan for the base is formulated and how
requests are made for future use of the property by homeless assistance
providers and non-federal public agencies. On November 18, 1994, the
City of Suffolk, VA submitted a timely request to proceed under the new
procedures. Accordingly, this notice of information regarding the
redevelopment authority fulfills the Federal Register publication
requirement of section 2(e)(3) of the Base Closure Community
Redevelopment and Homeless Assistance Act of 1994.
