The last couple of months has been a whirlwind of activity for the FAA EIS team. We held meetings in Juneau and Angoon, Alaska, and Washington D.C. for joint official hearings on the draft EIS and DOT&PF's Title XI ANILCA application. We all enjoyed meeting with everyone and hearing your comments and concerns on the project.
Since that time, the comment period for the draft EIS and the ANILCA Title XI application has closed. The FAA is reviewing all comments received on the draft EIS. All comments received will be responded to, and those responses will be available in the final EIS.
Normal practice for the FAA is to release the comments received and responses to these comments together in the final EIS. However, in this specific situation because the DOT&PF used the draft EIS as supporting documentation for their Title XI application, some of the comments received on the draft EIS relate to the application as well. Therefore the FAA has decided to release all comments received on the draft EIS at this time.
For anyone interested in seeing the comments received, as well as the testimony from the public hearings you MUST

Angoon Airport DEIS Comments
The majority of comments received were sent via email, with many of them including an attachment to the email. When you go to those emails, you will have to open the attachment to see the actual submittal. Note that anything that is "blue" is a live link. To be able to see the actual letter submitted by this commenter, you will need to double click on the blue attachment text. Please keep in mind that sometimes there will be multiple attachments, often they are simply agency logos or website links. You will only need to click on an attachment that is either a pdf or word document.
The comments are being provided for informational purposes only. As noted above, the comment period has ended and FAA will not be accepting any further comments on the draft EIS.
