December 2016 - FAA Project Final Update
Hello Angoon Community,
First and foremost, thank you for your involvement in the Angoon Airport Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)!
The FAA Alaskan Regional Administrator signed the Record of Decision
on October 21, 2016 making a decision to approve Airport 12a with Access 12a. Right of Way acquisition, design, and airport construction will be led by the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (Alaska DOT&PF).
While my official role as the EIS project manager is complete, I wanted to send one final note to you. I have very much enjoyed getting to know all of you through the EIS process over the last several years. Please know that you have been a very important part of this process, and it is easy to say that it would not have been successful without your help, input and passion for your community. I am excited for the Community of Angoon and I am so pleased to have been a part of it! Your primary point of contact for airport design and construction questions will be Verne Skagerberg Alaska DOT&PF's Angoon Airport project manager. He can be reached at 907.465.4477 or by e-mail at
Even though my official role on this project is complete, I am more than happy to assist if I can. Please still feel free to contact me if you have any follow-up questions:
