Written Comments Now Being Accepted: F-35 Aircraft EIS Scope Until April 6

March 9, 2018 8:15 AM

The National Guard Bureau is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the beddown of F-35A aircraft at Truax Field. Truax was selected as one of two preferred alternatives in December 2017. 

Last Wednesday, six north and east side alders (Ahrens, Baldeh, DeMarb, Palm, Rummel and Zellers ) held a listening session at the East Madison Community Center. They were joined by three County Board Supervisors- O'Loughlin, Rusk and Wegleitner. Approximately 17 people testified and shared comments on economic impacts, emergency fire services provided to the airport by the 115th Fighter Wing, noise and flight paths, environmental justice impacts on children/low income and minority residents and other vulnerable populations who live close to/under flight paths, risk of crashes, cost and delays of F-35 program implementation, whether and what type of armaments would be on board the F-35s, hazardous materials affecting soil/water/air quality, impacts on wetlands and waterways including Starkweather Creek, and federal budget choices. We also received written comments. One comment indicated there were native burial mounds and artifacts at the airport/Air National Guard sites.

Public comment should be submitted on the scope of the environmental impact study through April 6. There will be further opportunities to comment when the environmental impact statement is written. The EIS process is predicted to take about a year with a Record of Decision expected in June 2019.

Written comments may be submitted to:

Ms. Christel Johnson, National Guard Bureau
NGB/ A4AM, Shepperd Hall
3501 Fetchet Ave.
Joint Base Andrews, MD 20762–5157


Comments may also be submitted on the project website at www.ANGF35EIS.com
