The DoN's proposed action is to construct and operate a live-fire training range complex, a main cantonment area, including family housing, and associated infrastructure in support of the Guam Military Relocation. The DoN recognizes that public comments are an essential part of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. Accordingly, the DoN established a 60-day public comment period in lieu of the 45-day period required by NEPA. In response to public comments, the DoN has extended the Draft SEIS 60-day public comment period by an additional 15 days to July 1, 2014, EDT [July 2nd, 2014, ChST].
