The NEPA process will vary somewhat, depending on whether the project requires an EA or an EIS. We may solicit additional public, agency, and Tribal input to identify the nature and scope of the environmental issues that should be addressed during NEPA review, following appropriate public notice. We will then publish a notice of availability for the draft NEPA document and draft HCP and seek additional public comment before completing our final analysis to determine whether to issue an ITP. emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Public Comments The Service invites the public to provide comments that will assist our NEPA analysis during this 30-day public comment period (see DATES).
