Public Scoping Period

The public scoping period took place from December 22, 2016 through February 3, 2017. As a part of the public scoping process, the U.S. Air Force held four public scoping meetings. The public was encouraged to attend the meetings to learn more about the proposal and assist the U.S. Air Force in “scoping” issues to evaluate in the EIS. The meetings were open-house style and arranged in a “come and go” format with no formal U.S. Air Force presentation or opportunity for public testimony. Written comments were also accepted at all meetings.
