Public Comment

Public involvement is a fundamental aspect of the environmental impact analysis process. The Navy welcomes and appreciates the public’s participation.

The public comment period is now closed. Thank you for your participation in the public involvement process.

The purpose of the scoping period was to receive substantive comments from the public on the development of an environmental impact statement by identifying the scope of the analysis, including potential environmental issues and viable alternatives. Comments received during scoping are used to improve the analyses presented in the Draft EIS/OEIS, and to ensure that impacts are adequately determined.

Public CommentComments were accepted throughout the 60-day public comment period, which began April 27, 2018, and ended on June 26, 2018. All comments were to be postmarked or received online by June 26, 2018, for consideration in the Draft EIS/OEIS.
