Just in…Navy to meet in PA on Electronic Warfare Training Nov 6th – 6PM

Just in from Carrol Hull.

Dear Friends,

The good news is that the Navy has consented to a meeting with the public in PA at the City Council Chambers on November 6th at 6:00pm. This is in regards to the Navy Electronic Warfare Training that is being proposed on the west side of the Olympic Peninsula just outside the boundaries of the National Olympic Park. UPDATE: The comment period has been extended to late November. Update on all of this tomorrow.

The Sierra Club has sent in its very thorough remarks to the Forest Service. It goes after the proposal and the lack of environmental review as well as the inappropriateness of such activity in public lands right next to a National Park.  I would be happy to send it to you upon request.

Many of you sent letter (even though I gave you an incorrect email address) and I thank you.  If you have not sent a letter as of yet, I certainly encourage you to do so before the end of the day on October 31st.  I would also encourage you to attend the meeting in PA. It looks like it will be the only one on the east side of the NOP.  Our elected officials as well as the Navy, Forest Service and the Navy need to hear from us.

  1. The U.S. Forest Service has extended their deadline for public comments sometime into November, the exact date to be announced soon.

  2. Carol’s email says the mtg is in PA and your headline says PT. Libby

  3. Carroll,
    I am under the impression that the forestry service has not said yet that they will extend the deadline, not that they “won’t” extend the deadline. Since they just agreed to the new meeting I would imagine that an extension will follow. Do you have something saying they “won’t?”

  4. your note says the Navy will meet in PT – but don’t you mean PA?
