The United States Air Force officially released their final LEIS for the Military Land Withdrawal of the Desert National Wildlife Refuge and their intentions of gutting the largest refuge in the lower 48 states were made loud and clear.
A copy of the Draft LEIS can be viewed at www.NTTRLEIS.com(http://www.nttrleis.com/). The 90-day public comment period begins on Dec. 8, 2017 and concludes March 8, 2018. This period ensures the public has ample opportunity to review and comment on the Draft LEIS. The Air Force will host a series of public hearings to provide members of the community with information about this proposal. The LEIS comment period and public hearings also serve to provide the public and other stakeholder organizations with the opportunity to comment on potential historic resources effects of the undertaking in accordance with the requirements of the National Historic Preservation Act.
Attendees have the opportunity to provide oral and written comments during the public hearings, or they may mail in written comments or post comments to the website (http://www.nttrleis.com/
