Abstract : The United States Air Force, Air Combat Command, proposes to privatize its military family housing at Dyess AFB, Texas. The Proposed Action would involve the conveyance of up to 674 housing units distributed among seven parcels to a private developer. Conveyance would also involve utility connections from each housing unit to points of demarcation as identified by the Air Force. The land areas underlying the conveyed units would be leased to the developer for a period of up to 50 years. Also included in the Proposed Action is the lease of a 7-acre parcel, which includes the Housing Maintenance Facility, and a 14-acre ball park area. The developer would construct a combined housing office and community center with pool on the 7-acre parcel and a small community center with water play/splash park at the ball park area. The total leased area would be 362 acres distributed among nine parcels. The National Defense Authorization Act of 1996 authorized the Department of Defense to engage private sector businesses through a process of housing privatization wherein private sector housing developers would renovate or demolish existing housing units, build new units, and provide the infrastructure needed to support such developments. The developer would own the units, lease the land from the Air Force, and collect rent from service members while providing maintenance and management. Dyess Air Force Base (AFB) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) that evaluates the potential environmental impacts associated with the implementation of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) at Dyess AFB.
