Proposed Actions at Ft. Lewis & YTC

The showing was light from community interests at the Ft. Lewis public meeting for presentation and comments about alternatives to increase post strength up to 5,700 soldiers and 110 helicopters.

Army personnel easily outnumbered the citizenry at 11 informational displays (scoping posters) that discussed each alternative from zero change up to the potentially cumulative increase. The Army was forthright in identifying both significant impacts and proposed mitigation for those impacts.

While written or oral comments were accepted last night, those interested may still make comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) no later than (received or postmarked) October 26, 2009.
