Camden County Seeking Applicants for Planning Commission
The Camden County Board of County Commissioners is seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Camden County Planning Commission, District 5 Appointment.

The Planning Commission evaluates development projects and land policy proposals which serve to promote community, future land use trends, public health, general welfare, economic prosperity, and overall quality of life for Camden County residents.

Spaceport Camden Environmental Impact Statement Update
This message provides an update on the status of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Spaceport Camden Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

The FAA is continuing to develop the Final EIS. As part of that process, the FAA has consulted with Federal and state agencies. Agency and public comments are being incorporated into the Final EIS. In addition, the FAA has completed a number of consultations including Section 4f of the Department of Transportation Act, Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (with National Marine Fisheries and US Fish and Wildlife), and Essential Fish Habitat. The FAA is continuing to work with the Georgia State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) to complete the Section 106 process. 

As previously announced, the FAA had planned to release the Final EIS in April 2021 and Record of Decision (ROD) in June 2021. However, due to discussions and consultation efforts with consulting parties, the FAA is announcing an update to the schedule. The FAA now plans to release the Final EIS in late May 2021 and ROD in late June 2021.

A notice will be sent to individuals and organizations on the project distribution list when the Final EIS and ROD are available.

Updates on the Final EIS and ROD will also be provided via the project website:
