Official Notice from USAF re.: extending public comment period
PRESS RELEASE from US AIR FORCE regarding extension of public comment period for the F-35s
To ensure ample opportunity for the community to provide comments, the Air Force is extending the public comment period for the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the F-35A operational beddown at Truax Field. The original EIS period was to end September 27, 2019; the comment period will now end on November 1, 2019.
The Air Force notified the 115th Fighter Wing yesterday, that it wants to provide all interested parties with every opportunity to provide input to the proposed action to beddown F-35s at Truax through the environmental impact statement process. The Air Force has announced this extension to the community by publishing an advisory in the Federal Register.
The National Guard Bureau has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement to evaluate the potential environmental consequences from the proposed bed down of 18 F-35A aircraft at two of five alternative locations:
115th Fighter Wing, Madison, Wisconsin
124th Fighter Wing, Boise, Idaho
125th Fighter Wing, Jacksonville, Florida
127th Wing, Harrison Township, Michigan
187th Fighter Wing, Montgomery, Alabama

You may also download a copy of the Environmental Impact Statement and submit comments via the project website at www.ANGF35EIS.com or via email at
