On September 5, 2013 (78 FR 54635), the DoN published a notice of intent to prepare an EIS for EA-18G Growler Airfield Operations at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington and also announced public scoping meetings. DoN provided a 120-day public scoping period which ended on January 3, 2014. The original public scoping period was intended to avoid any complications or delays that could result from government shutdowns and the end of the calendar year.
This notice announces an extension of the public scoping period until January 31, 2014. Scoping comments may be submitted in writing to the EA-18G EIS Project Manager (Code EV21/SS); Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Atlantic, 6506 Hampton Boulevard, Norfolk, Virginia 23508, or electronically via the project Web site (http://www.whidbeyeis.com).
