Verbal comments will be accepted at the hearings; your input is valuable and assists the DAF in making more informed decisions. The DAF will host three public hearings on the following dates:
Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2022 – 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (Central) at a location near Ebbing ANGB, Arkansas

Pre-registration is required for all meetings to comply with the Secretary of the Air Force COVID mitigation guidance. Meeting locations, links and instructions will be distributed after registering and prior to all public hearings. If unable to pre-register online for a hearing, you may call your local base Public Affairs office to register:
Ebbing ANGB Public Affairs: (479) 573-5323
Selfridge ANGB Public Affairs: (586) 239-4735

Both the in-person hearings and the virtual hearing will begin with a 30-minute presentation regarding the proposed action and environmental impacts, followed by a 30-minute open house session. The last hour of the meeting is set aside for an official oral comment session, where participants can provide oral comments for the record regarding the environmental impacts of the proposed action (up to three minutes in length).

The material presented at the public meetings, received comments, and associated documentation, as well as the Final EIS (when published) will be made available for viewing on the Documents/Information Page.

For those unable to attend a public hearing, comments will also be accepted online or by mail. Please click here to provide comments. The DAF will accept comments at any time during the environmental process. Written, electronic and oral comments will be given equal weight; however, to ensure the Air Force has sufficient time to consider public input in preparation of the Final EIS, please submit comments by October 17, 2022.
