SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — The Army is conducting two community listening sessions in Hawaii this month to hear from communities about how troop reductions and restructuring could impact them.

Army leaders will begin the sessions with a short overview of the reduction and restructuring process. Afterwards, the community will have an opportunity to provide input on how a potential reduction of up to 19,800 Army Soldiers and civilian employees in Hawaii could affect them.

The listening sessions will be held as follows:

Jan. 27, 2015
6:30-9 p.m.
Hale Koa Hotel, DeRussy Ballroom
2055 Kalia Road, Waikiki
Parking is $5 with validation

Jan. 28, 2015
6:30-9 p.m.
Leilehua High School, Cafeteria
1515 California Ave., Wahiawa
Parking is free.

Both sessions will be hosted by Department of the Army leaders from Washington, D.C., and Maj. Gen. Charles Flynn, commander, U.S. Army-Hawaii.

No stationing decisions have been made, yet; however, Army leaders anticipate that an overall reduction of Soldiers will impact most every Army post nationwide.

For questions, contact U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii Public Affairs at (808) 656-3158 or (808) 656-3159.

Environmental Assessment

In November 2014, the Army completed an analysis of environmental impacts of potential force reductions on communities surrounding 30 Army installations, to include Fort Shafter and Schofield Barracks.

The results are published in the “2014 Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Army 2020 Force Structure Realignment,” which can be found online at http://aec.army.mil/Services/Support/NEPA/Documents.aspx.
