ORANGE PARK, Fla. – The U.S. Navy gathered public input Thursday evening as part of a process to decide how many 8-A Poseidon squadrons it will move to Naval Air Station Jacksonville.

The meeting focused on potential environmental impacts of the move, from noise to air quality. Neighbors also learned the flight patterns of the aircraft.

The Navy is deciding whether to move five or six squadrons to Jacksonville.

While the move would likely mean fewer personnel at the base, officials see it as a win for NAS Jacksonville. They said it solidifies its importance as a hub of naval aviation.

The Navy will continue to collect public input until December. A final decision on how many planes to move will be announced in the Spring.
