Navy tells Whidbey residents where to comment

In an effort to improve service to local communities and enhance focus on airfield safety, Whidbey Island Naval Air Station is establishing a new comment line and email address where community members can express their thoughts, concerns and issues beginning May 28.

Using this method will allow members of the public an opportunity to provide concentrated and comprehensive feedback, including noise complaints, according to a NAS Whidbey news release.
