Public Notice         Project Plans

On 4 March 2021, the Corps published a public notice for SpaceX’s proposed modification to the existing permit for the continued development of the SpaceX vertical launch area with the expansion and addition of test, orbital, and landing pads, integration towers, associated infrastructure, stormwater management features and vehicle parking.  The proposed expansion would have impacted 10.94 acres of mud flats, 5.94 acres of estuarine wetlands, and 0.28 acres of non-tidal wetlands.  The evaluation of the proposed modification was withdrawn by the Corps on 7 March 2022 to provide SpaceX time to develop an alternatives analysis and public interest review necessary to complete our evaluation.
