The Air Force recently announced that it will be holding five public meetings, referred to as public-scoping meetings, February 22-26 in five communities near Luke AFB and its operations.

Public-scoping meetings are just the beginning

The purpose of the public-scoping process is to actively involve citizens and government agencies in helping identify the environmental issues to be addressed in the environmental analysis of the F-35 at Luke. These meetings will provide you with an introduction to the F-35 and its capabilities and mission. Specific information on how the F-35 will be integrated at Luke as a training facility will also be covered.

Open-house format

The meetings will be held using an “open-house” type format where there will be several informational tables for you to visit. Air Force, as well as Luke AFB, representatives will be staffing these tables to answer questions you may have. These public-scoping meetings will have no formal presentations. But, there will be an opportunity to submit written comments to the Air Force regarding Luke and the F-35.

Public Scoping Meeting Schedule:

Gila Bend Gila Bend Unified School District, 308 N. Martin Ave. 6-9 p.m., Monday, Feb. 22

Luke Forward campaign organizers are urging Luke supporters to attend one of the upcoming public scoping meetings, so you can learn as much as possible about the EIS process. Luke Forward has also provided an ability for people to fill out an EIS form on their website if they cannot make the meetings. A Fighter Country representative will deliver all forms to each EIS meeting.
