EIS Scoping Comment Period Complete

The EIS scoping comment period, which ran from March 17 – April 15, 2016, is now closed. During this period, we received approximately 2,500 public comments through the online open house, by email, phone, postal mail, hand delivery, and at the Scoping Open House held at Anacortes High School on March 31, 2016. Thank you for being part of this important step of the EIS process. Comments received during the scoping comment period will be made available on the comment page as they become available.

A draft scoping report is now being prepared, and will summarize the substantive comments received on the EIS scope. Skagit County will consider all substantive comments in the preparation of the draft EIS. Once the draft EIS is complete, it will be published and a public hearing and public comment period will be scheduled.
