The CCDOA hosted a series of public and agency scoping meetings to accept comments on conditions, studies, plans, and other considerations that may be relevant to determining the potential environmental consequences of the Proposed Action or its alternatives. On June 28, 2004, the CCDOA hosted a public scoping meeting and an agency scoping meeting to request input on the scope of the environmental analysis to be conducted for the EA.

The CCDOA hosted an Open House for the Seven Hills/Westgate and Anthem areas in Henderson, Nevada on July 15, 2004.  The Open House addressed issues related to the Heliport and the EA process.

The public scoping period ended on August 2, 2004;
thirty-two (32) comments were received during this time.

Originally, the CCDOA identified four build alternatives in addition to the proposed action, as well as a no action alternative in which commercial helicopter operations would remain based at McCarran International Airport.

In October 2004, a fifth build alternative was added to the scope of the EA, which includes a site within the boundary of the Sunrise Landfill. A public meeting regarding the addition of the Sunrise Landfill site was held with the Sunrise Manor Town Advisory Board on December 2, 2004.  The public comment period ended on December 17, 2004.  One hundred and twenty-eight (128) comments have been received from individuals, agencies, and other interested parties regarding this site.

See the Final Environmental Assessment for a Southern Nevada Regional Heliport for evaluation of the alternatives in Section II, Alternatives.
