    BLUERIBBON COALITION LAND USE UPDATE!
    Draft EIS for Proposed 29Palms Training Land/Airspace Acquisition Project Available
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    The Department of the Navy, on behalf of the Marine Corps, has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the 29 Palms Training Land Acquisition/Airspace Establishment Study. Potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed expansion of the training range at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center ("Combat Center") at Twentynine Palms, California, are evaluated in the Draft EIS.
    This proposed action would accommodate sustained, combined-arms, live-fire and maneuver training exercises for all elements of a Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB). The Department of the Navy has prepared the Draft EIS in cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management and Federal Aviation Administration.
    To download a copy of the EIS, or to find the locations of information repositories where hard copies are available for review, please visit www.marines.mil/unit/29palms/las.
    Comments may be submitted at a public meeting or in writing. A stenographer will be available for those wanting to submit an oral comment at the meeting. All written comments must be postmarked or received by May 26, 2011, to be considered in the Final EIS. Written comments may be submitted via the website at www.marines.mil/unit/29palms/las or mailed to:
