Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for Beddown of Training F-35A Aircraft
The United States Air Force published a Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS in the Federal Register (Vol. 74, No. 247, page 68597) on Dec 28, 2009. Due to severe weather in New Mexico, some of the scoping meetings were cancelled. In the Air Force's effort to make every attempt to allow the public an opportunity for providing their input, we have re-scheduled the scoping meetings to be held in Ruidoso and Ft. Sumner, NM. Furthermore, due to public interest and comments, The Air Force has decided to add three additional scoping meetings in New Mexico and Arizona for the Holloman AFB and Tucson International Airport Air Guard Station alternatives. This revised Notice of Intent is prepared to notify the public of the rescheduling and additional scoping meetings to be held in New Mexico and Arizona. Also, due to these additional scoping meetings the public comment period is extended to May 17, 2010.
