FAIRBANKS — The U.S. Air Force will host public meetings in Fairbanks later this month to review its draft study on the impacts of the possible relocation of Eielson’s F-16 jet squadron.

Open houses on the draft environmental impact statement will be held June 19 in Fairbanks and June 20 in North Pole to hear from the public about the study’s findings.

The study explored the impacts of relocating the 1,500 military and civilian positions and the additional 1,600 jobs indirectly tied to the squadron.

The Fairbanks meeting will be held at the Westmark Hotel, and the North Pole meeting will be held at North Pole Elementary School.

Both meetings are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

Written comments can be directed to Mr. Allen Richmond, AFCEC/CZN, 2261 Hughes Ave., Suite 155, Lackland AFB, TX 78236-9853. Comments on the impact statement may be submitted electronically at
