Abstract : The purpose of the Proposed Action is to privatize MFH at Langley AFB. Privatizing MFH includes conveying 1,496 existing units to a privatization contractor and leasing the property on which the units are located to the contractor. This EA evaluates the No Action Alternative, the Proposed Action, the Maximum Development Alternative, and cumulative impacts of other actions. Under the No Action Alternative, the 1,496 existing MFH units would not be conveyed to a privatization contractor and the units would continue to be used to house military personnel and dependents. The Proposed Action and Maximum Development Alternative include conveying 1,496 units and associated infrastructure and leasing 350 acres associated with the MFH to a privatization contractor. Under the Proposed Action Alternative, the contractor would demolish 1,104 units in the Bethel Manor area and construct 1,049 replacement units, construct two units in the HTA area, renovate 109 units (47 units in the LTA and 62 units in the HTA area), and convey ?as is? 270 units (148 units in the 2000 area of Bethel Manor, 72 units in the LTA area, and 50 units in the HTA area). The contractor would operate, maintain, and manage an MFH inventory totaling 1,430 units. Under the Maximum Development Alternative, the contractor would demolish all 1,252 units in Bethel Manor and construct 1,211 replacement units. No units would be renovated at Bethel Manor under the Maximum Development Alternative. Construction and renovation activities in the LTA and HTA housing areas would remain the same as the Proposed Action. The privatization contractor would manage an inventory totaling 1,444 units. The privatization contractor would manage the housing development for a minimum of 50 years under the Proposed Action or Maximum Development Alternative.
