Bennet Encourages Coloradans to Submit Public Comment to Air Force on Space Command HQ

Draft Environmental Assessment Finds No Significant Environmental Impact at Peterson Space Force Base

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today encouraged Coloradans to submit public comments to the U.S. Air Force on the proposed move of U.S. Space Command from Colorado Springs to Huntsville, Alabama. The comment period is open through August 12, 2022 as part of the U.S. Air Force’s National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review of the environmental impact of the Space Command HQ at all six candidate sites.

“Colorado is the rightful home for U.S. Space Command, especially given Peterson’s unique ability to reach Full Operational Capability faster than other candidate bases. I will continue to work with  Coloradans to express ongoing concerns about the Trump Administration’s flawed decision,” said Bennet.

NEPA is one of the last procedural steps before the administration makes its final basing decision. The draft Environmental Assessment issued a Finding of No Significant Impact at each location under consideration, including at Peterson Space Force Base in Colorado Springs.

Coloradans can submit a comment by email to or via mail to AFIMSC Public Affairs, 2261 Hughes Avenue, JBSA-Lackland, Texas 78236.
