KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - The U.S. Navy plans to host an open house in Kodiak Monday to discuss a draft supplemental environmental impact statement on military training in the Gulf of Alaska.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror (https://is.gd/aHFr4I ) reports the meeting is set to take place between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Monday at the Kodiak Elks Lodge.

The Navy is also seeking to get public feedback. Verbal and written comments are being accepted until Oct. 20. on the draft supplemental environmental impact statement and overseas environmental impact statement.

Similar meetings also are planned in Anchorage, Homer, Juneau and Cordova.

The training area being looked at covers a little less than 56,000 square miles, located about 50 miles from Kodiak Island at its closest point.
