Get Involved & Schedule


Public involvement is of primary importance in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which requires full and honest disclosure of potential environmental impacts to the public. The Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP) provides multiple opportunities for public involvement. The public has an important role in providing input during this process to help the National Guard Bureau (NGB) make a more informed decision about implementing this proposal.

The first opportunity for public involvement is the process called “public scoping.” During NEPA scoping, Federal agencies, American Indian Tribes, state agencies, local governments, non-governmental organizations, stakeholders, and the general public will have the opportunity to identify the scope of issues to be addressed in the EIS. Using input obtained during the scoping period, the NGB will refine the study to focus on significant issues, as well as eliminate issues that are not significant from further detailed study.

The scoping period for this Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) began with the publication of the Notice of Intent (NOI) in the Federal Register on February 7, 2018 and formally ends on April 6, 2018. In order to ensure that your scoping comments are considered in the preparation of the Draft EIS, we recommend that comments be submitted no later than April 6, 2018, although NGB will continue to accept scoping comments until publication of the Draft EIS. A second opportunity for public comment will occur following publication of the Draft EIS, which is anticipated to be published in late 2018.
