Welcome to the Angoon Airport Environmental Impact Statement Website

A message from Leslie Grey, Angoon Airport EIS FAA Project Manager

FAA Alaskan Region, Airports Division

Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice. - Unknown

On behalf of our EIS team, I am excited to announce that we have completed and published the Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS). The menu to the left includes a link to the Final EIS where you can download a copy or find other ways to receive or find a copy locally. We have all been working on this project for a very long time, in fact, we started in 2008. There have been many challenges along the way, but I must say that it has truly been a pleasure working with you all on such an important project for the community of Angoon. Getting to know you during our visits to Angoon as well as talking with you on the phone was special. Your passion for your land and your people shows so strongly and I am so very glad to have experience all of it.

The next step in the process will be the release of FAA’s Record of Decision (ROD). This ROD will disclose what alternative the FAA has decided to implement and provide the supporting information for this decision. As required by FAA regulations, the FAA will not make a final decision on the airport for a minimum of 30 days after the release of the final EIS. When that decision has been made, the ROD will be made available to the public and we will send out notification. We expect to issue the decision in late October 2016.

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

Best wishes,
