Get Involved and Schedule

Public involvement and input are essential to the NEPA process. There are designated phases of the EIS process when you can provide comments.

The Air Force initiated scoping by publishing a Notice of Intent in the Federal Register. The Public Scoping Period is the first of two opportunities for public input in the EIS process. Your input during scoping will be considered in the development of the Draft EIS. Please visit the Comment page after reviewing all the materials on this website!

The Draft EIS Public Review and Comment Period is the second opportunity for public input. The Draft EIS will be available on this website and in local libraries. Formal Public Hearings will be held throughout the region to solicit comments on the analyses presented in the Draft EIS. After this comment period the Final EIS will be made available on the project website and in local libraries, initiating the 30-day waiting period. After the waiting period, the Record of Decision will be released on this website.

The Air Force is hosting several in-person open-house style public meetings during the public scoping period to provide information to interested parties. Please attend a meeting near you to meet with Air Force representatives and ask questions. If you do not wish to attend a meeting in person, please visit the virtual presentation on this website.

***The health and safety of the public and our team members is of utmost concern.  Due to rising COVID cases and evolving restrictions on the size of public gatherings, please check this page frequently for changes to venue or cancellations. In the event an in-person meeting is cancelled, please visit the Virtual Presentation page on this website. All of the information displayed at the in-person meetings is available on this website.
