A draft Environmental Impact Statement – part of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s (NGA) required review of four sites under consideration for a new facility in the region – will be released to the public in mid-October, NGA announced August 13.
Originally scheduled for release at the end of August, the delay is required to ensure the study results are adequately reflected in the draft publication. The later release is not expected to impact the agency’s timeline to announce a site selection in spring 2016.
Public meetings will also be held near the end of October to allow for comments on the draft. Details, including times and locations, will be announced in the near future.
