The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) resumed operations yesterday, January 28. During the partial government shutdown the timeline for the ACHP’s development of comments to the Navy regarding the Section 106 review for the proposed increase in the EA-18G Growler activity on Naval Air Station Whidbey Island did stop, but resumed again beginning January 26, 2019.
The new deadline for the ACHP to submit its comments to the Navy is February 19, 2019.
Despite the partial government shutdown, the ACHP continued to accept and receive public comments through January 3, 2019, as specified in an earlier public release and at our public meeting back on December 19. Reports by some that this public comment period was extended beyond January 3, 2019, are incorrect.
The ACHP is in the process of considering all public input and will share its final comments to the Navy with the public very soon after they are released.
