The U.S. Air Force has rescheduled scoping meetings throughout communities surrounding Mountain Home Air Force Base beginning Apr. 12.
The meetings will cover the description of the proposed action and alternatives of a proposed establishment of air and ground training spaces in support of urban close air support proficiency for F-15 Strike Eagle aircrews.
Training in urban centers is critical to the Gunfighter mission as they provide an environment with the same tactical challenges encountered during operations in a deployed environment. During the meetings, a board will be present to clarify any uncertainties of the training. The board will also take down any questions or concerns the public may have at this time and will address those said questions when the environmental assessment is conducted at a later time.
April 12, 6-7:45 p.m. — Meridian Library (Main Branch), 1326 W Cherry Ln, Meridian, ID
April 13, 4-6 p.m. — Boise Main Library, Marion Bingham Rm, 715 S. Capitol Blvd, Boise
