Since that time the BLM has received requests from the North Slope communities nearest to the planning area that the comment period be extended. This extension responds to those requests. Scoping meetings will be held in Nuiqsut, Atqasuk, Anaktuvuk Pass, Barrow, Anchorage and Fairbanks. Times and locations of the meetings will be advertised locally.
