Throughout the 90-day public comment period, the Forest Service offered multiple ways – including website submissions, written comments and public hearings – for interested parties to comment on the analysis and findings in the Draft EIS. The Forest Service hosted six public hearings in towns and cities including Superior, San Tan Valley, Kearny, Globe, Queen Valley, and Tempe. Two court reporters recorded oral comments from attendees. These are the public comments from each public hearing.

Comments from each of the six public hearings are available for viewing. Note that the public comment period is now closed.
