Abstract : A Draft Environmental Statement was published in June 1974 and discussed the proposed Continental Operations Range (COR); a proposal which involved a three phase program of improvement and integration of three existing military ranges (Tactical Fighter Weapons Center Range, Hill/Wendover/Dugway, and Fallon Naval Air Station). On July 30, 1974 a public hearing on the COR proposal was held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Subsequently the COR proposal was cancelled; however, proposed airspace changes and additional radar sites peculiar to the Tactical Fighter Weapons Center Range are still required. The utilization, air space proposals and proposed improvements for the Tactical Fighter Weapons Center Range Complex (TRC) are similar to those planned for this range under the near term COR concept; therefore, the environmental impacts associated with the proposals for the Tactical Fighter Weapons Center Range in the COR draft environmental statement remain valid and have been carried forward to this final environmental statement. Responses to comments received on the draft statement are found in Annexes A and B.
