For an update, see the Navy's Draft FINAL EIS
The Navy's DRAFT Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) was produced in the Fall, 2016, with a final deadline for comments by February 24, 2017. The DEIS concerned the Navy's plan to add 35 or 36 more Growler Jets to the Naval Air Station on Whidbey Island, estimating a 46-47% increase in Growler jet traffic in our area.
If you would like some background, you can read some of the letters and comments made in response to the DEIS.
