Abstract : The purpose of the 2012-14 CIP is to provide a short-range plan that identifies infrastructure and facility improvements deemed necessary to fully support the Davis-Monthan AFB mission in fiscal years 2012 through 2014. The EA is intended to provide a systematic evaluation of representative CIP projects to expedite future environmental review for other CIP projects that may be needed. Projects that are similar to the projects evaluated in the EA and that would result in similar impacts that have been determined to be insignificant can be categorically excluded from further environmental analysis under Air Force Categorical Exclusion Number A2.3.11 (32 CFR Part 989). Other projects may be evaluated in separate NEPA documents that tier off of the EA. This means that the other NEPA documents would incorporate by reference applicable information from the EA and only focus on the site-specific effects of the other projects (40 CFR 1508.28). The purpose of the proposed action is to provide infrastructure and facility improvements that have been deemed necessary to continue to fully support and implement Davis-Monthan AFB missions. Davis-Monthan AFB needs to maintain, revitalize, expand, and demolish facilities in support of current missions, which play a predominant role in protecting and preserving the national interests of the United States of America. Existing infrastructure and facilities generally meet existing mission requirements, although some facilities and supporting infrastructure are outdated and in need of replacement or repairs. These facilities do not adequately support current and future mission requirements, are not adequately sized, or are outdated and in need of repairs or replacement.
