NORFOLK, Va. –
The Secretary of the Navy has responded to the comments from the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP). The Navy agrees with ACHP on a number of comments and plans to provide the National Park Service with funds ($887,000) to support Ferry House preservation, and to install historical interpretive signs within the Ebey's Landing National Historic Reserve.
The Navy is committed to ensuring that it remains a good neighbor with the local communities surrounding our installations while at the same time meeting our urgent national defense priorities. A copy of the Navy's response to the ACHP is provided as an attachment, and is available on the EA-18G Growler Environmental Impact Statement at Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island Complex website at http://www.whidbeyeis.com.
