This website is the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps’ online center for public information and involvement in the Barry M. Goldwater Range (BMGR) land withdrawal Legislative Environmental Impact Statement (LEIS).  The purpose of this site is to provide information and obtain public input on the Air Force and Marine Corps’ proposal to continue authorization of the BMGR and add about 2,366 acres of public land (a 0.14 percent land increase) to BMGR East, referred to as the Gila Bend Addition. The U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marine Corps are committed to responsibly managing the environmental resources of the BMGR and to remaining good stewards and neighbors.

Importance of Public Participation in the BMGR LEIS

The process of developing an LEIS includes several steps designed to encourage and secure input from the public to inform the decision making process. Information gathered during the LEIS process will be used to help understand public views, inform the environmental analysis, and refine the project. This website provides information and services to help you participate in the LEIS process.
