MEPA Public Comment Portal
The most efficient way to submit comments on MEPA projects is through the Public Comment Portal. You may register and create an account or submit comments anonymously.
Submit Comments by e-mail
All comments received by the deadline will be provided to the Secretary for review and included in the public record for the project. Comments can be e-mailed directly to the Environmental Analyst reviewing the project. Please reference the project name and EEA# in the subject line of the e-mail. The EEA# and Environmental Analyst assigned to the project can be found in the Environmental Monitor.
Submit Comments by Mail or Hand Delivery
Electronic comments are preferred; however, written comments comments may be mailed or hand delivered to the MEPA office. Office hours are 9 AM - 5 PM.
The mailing address is:
