Abstract : The Air Force proposes to construct new housing units for military personnel assigned to Los Angeles Air Force Base (LAAFB), California. This action would help fulfill the projected deficit of military family housing (MFH) and maintain Air Force standards of living for military personnel and their families. Four options for fulfilling the MFH deficit were evaluated by the Air Force (i,e,, the Proposed Action and three alternatives). The Proposed Action is the development of MFH on the US Navy White Point housing site and an adjacent, undeveloped parcel of land. The three alternatives to the Proposed Action are: (1) demolition of a portion of the San Pedro Navy Housing on John Montgomery Drive and rebuilding MFH on this site; (2) construction of new housing units on the Fort MacArthur Upper Reservation; and (3) the No Action Alternative, All sites are located in the community of San Pedro in the City of Los Angeles, An Environmental Assessment (EA) dated December 1996 has been prepared to evaluate the environmental impacts of the Proposed Action and alternatives, In late 1993, the Air Force originally proposed to alleviate its housing deficit by building up to 150 single-family, housing units at the Fort MacArthur Upper Reservation in San Pedro. Significant adverse environmental impacts were expected to occur, and a Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was published in the Federal Register on July 20, 1994. However, as a result of a public scoping meeting held in August, 1994, and the 1995 Base Realignment and Closure Committee decision to close US Naval Station Long Beach, the Proposed Action was changed, In February, 1996, the Air Force proposed to build up to 96 single-family housing units on the US Navy White Point housing site, including an adjacent, Navy-owned, undeveloped, 8-acre parcel of land.
