How to Request a Public Scoping Meeting

In some cases, the agency proposing the project/action (the "sponsoring agency") will schedule a Public Scoping Meeting automatically. However, if the Scoping Notice indicates that no Public Scoping Meeting is scheduled, the sponsoring agency might still schedule a Public Scoping Meeting, at its discretion, or if twenty-five persons or an association having not less than twenty-five persons requests such a meeting within ten days of the publication of the Scoping Notice in the Environmental Monitor. To request a Public Scoping Meeting, you need only send correspondence making such a request to the name and address indicated in the Scoping Notice.

If a Public Scoping Meeting is scheduled, it will be held not less than ten days following the notice of the proposed project/action in the Environmental Monitor. The public comment period will remain open for at least five days following the Public Scoping Meeting.
