  • VA has announced another step in the process of bringing a VA cemetery to southern Colorado, like the cemetery pictured here in Denver.
This is a last-minute notice, but be advised that the Department of Veterans Affairs is conducting a meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight (Wednesday) about the planned VA cemetery in El Paso County.

(We just got notification of the meeting in today's regular mail.)

The meeting will be held at the Retired Enlisted Association, 834 Emory Circle.

The VA seeks input from the public for the draft Site-Specific Environmental Assessment for the cemetery "to evaluate the potential environmental consequences of construction and operation of the proposed new VA national cemetery in the Southern Colorado area."

We previously wrote about plans for the cemetery here and here.
 
After the environmental assessment is completed, it will be available for a 30-day public comment period, the VA says.
