    Please distribute this to all your networks: The Marines goofed!

    When preparing the website and public documents for the 29Palms Marine Base proposed expansion, the Marines neglected to give the correct mailing address for public comments on the home page of the website, and it is missing from all the public documents including:

    The Project Briefing Paper
    The Project Overview
    The Public Info Brief
    The Trifold Brochure
    The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
    The Contact
    The Public Comment Link on the home page
    Instead, the contact info is given only for the project office on the 29Palms Marine Base. The Project Manager, Mr. Chris Proudfoot, has been made aware of this problem, and has not responded to requests for an extension, and an investigation to find out how many public comments have been sent to the wrong address, what has been done with those comments, and what can be done to rectify a mistake that has existed since the release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement.

    NEPA requires and encourages public comment, and the Marines have not given the public the information needed to send in their comments. EVERYONE - send a message to the Marines politely requesting a 60-day extension of the comment period during which time they are to conduct an investigation and good faith effort to find out how many comments were submitted to the wrong address. This is a major NEPA violation, and they must rectify this mistake.

    Please contact immediately: Chris Proudfoot, Project Manager, at (760) 830-3764 and leave a message asking for a 60-day extension, or or do both!

    At this time, comments are still due May 26th, and it very important to submit comments now, either through the website at: or the CORRECT mailing address:
    Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Southwest
    ATTN: 29Palms EIS Project Manager
    1220 Pacific Highway
    San Diego, CA 92132-519

    Please act now!
