Thank you to the ~300 people who came out to last Tuesday's Rally in opposition to Holloman AFB's proposal to use the Gila for F-16 training. It was an amazing show of support for peaceful skies over Silver City and the Gila!

Thanks to the more than 2,300 people who submitted public comments or made oral public comment in opposition to the Holloman proposal. We hand delivered the public comments to the Air Force at the conclusion of the meeting and have sent via certified mail to ensure official receipt.

Additionally, twenty-seven organizations signed on to detailed scoping comments submitted to the Air Force. We believe that these comments identify the many issues the Air Force must be looking at to comprehensively evaluate environmental impacts from expanding its Special Use Airspace over Silver City and the Gila.

Holloman said at the meeting that the draft Environmental Impact Statement would be available in 6 months or so. To comply with the National Environmental Policy Act, the public expects Holloman to hold public meetings in Silver City and not leave us out of the process as they did for scoping.

We'll keep everyone posted in the coming months on additional ways to get your voice heard.

If you still have comment forms, sign-in sheets, signs or painted animals, please drop off at the GRIP/GCC office at 305A North Cooper St.
