F-35 Listening Session 
7:00 February 28, 2017
East Madison Community Center
8 Straubel Court      

In December 2017, Madison was selected by the National Guard, as one of two preferred sites, to be the home of a squadron of $100 million F-35 fighter jets. If selected, the first of the 18 planes would arrive at Truax Field on Madison's North Side early in 2023 after an environmental impact study, required by federal law, and a public comment period. The environmental impact study will review noise impacts, study potential flight paths, address pollution prevention and environmental justice for minority and low income populations. 
Truax Field, home of the 115th Fighter Wing, may be one of two preferred alternative locations for the new fighter jets, pending results of the environmental impact study. The National Guard Bureau has invited community members to attend an open house to share comments as part of their scoping process.   The agency will host two sessions on March 8: 2-4p and 5-8p at the Crowne Plaza Madison Hotel 4402 E Washington.
In anticipation of the of the sessions on March 8, six North and East side Alders will host a listening session on February 28 from 7pm to 8:30 Pm at the East Madison Community Center at 8 Straubel Court.  This listening session will solicit community feedback and any other concerns regarding the environmental impact of housing the F-35s at Truax Field.  Alders cordially invite residents to attend and express any opinions regarding the proposal.  Questions and comments will be referred back to the National Guard for consideration.


*Consent agenda--The consent agenda includes many agenda items that come to a vote without testimony or Council discussion.  Should anyone register and wish to speak, the item would be taken off the consent agenda.
