Comment Period Extended for the Pacific Northwest Electronic Warfare Range EA
The comment period on a special use permit that would allow U. S. Navy training operations to be conducted from Olympic National Forest has been extended until November 28, 2014. Olympic National Forest received a request from the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station for a special use permit that would allow the Navy to conduct training exercises from twelve locations within Olympic National Forest. The current comment period was to end October 31, 2014. Dean Millett, the Pacific District Ranger and Responsible Official for this decision, stated, “I’ve decided to extend the current public comment period to ensure the public has plenty of time to share their thoughts. If you have already provided comments on this project, you do not need to comment again with the same information you’ve already provided.”
In addition to extending the comment period, the City of Port Angeles is hosting Navy and US Forest staff for a question and answer session on Thursday, November 6th from 6-8pm in Port Angeles, WA. The location for this event is the City Council Chambers, located at 321 East Fifth Street, Port Angeles, WA.
