Citizens of the Ebey’s Reserve

Citizens of the Ebey’s Reserve for a Healthy, Safe & Peaceful Environment (“COER”) was formed in 2012 following the introduction of the EA18-G “Growler” aircraft to Whidbey Island and the public realization that the Navy had not accurately described the impact of the Growler in its 2005 Environmental Assessment.

Navy claims in that EA included that there would be fewer Growler operations than from the Prowlers being replaced, that the Growler was quieter than the Prowler, and that there would be less overall impact upon the public and the environment from the Growler.

Actual flight operations beginning in 2011 proved all of those claims to be false.  COER arose from the public outcry and opposition that resulted in Central Whidbey.

Today COER seeks to have the Growler missions relocated to military reservations where there will be no impact upon civilians or the environment.

Coupeville Community Allies

CCA organized following the release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement in November 2016.

Our early goal was to inform the community about the content of the DEIS and to encourage written responses to the Navy.

Following that early work, CCA has continued to organize, provide more information to the community about the impact of the Growler expansion through community forums and fact sheets, encourage community mobilization, and engage with elected representatives about the need to limit Navy growth.

Area Served: 

Central Whidbey
