Abstract : The United States Air Force, Air Combat Command proposes to develop privatized military family housing (MFH) for service members at Moody Air Force Base (AFB), Georgia. This document represents a revision to the Proposed Action as described in the original Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) published on July 15, 2013. Initially, the Proposed Action involved the construction, in two phases, of 11 housing units for senior leadership on a 15-acre parcel on the base (Figure 1-1), and 173 units on a 113- acre parcel located northwest of the city of Valdosta, Georgia (Figure 1-2). However, due to revised requirements, and issues raised during environmental analysis through the first Draft EA (published on July 15, 2013), the Air Force has revised the Proposed Action through a reduction of the 173 off-base units to 90 units based on current need; this is an overall reduction of 83 units. As a result of this change, only a portion of the 113-acre parcel is needed to fulfill the requirements; the land area needed is approximately 60 acres. The proposed off-base housing parcel is currently undeveloped. Development would require housing area transportation infrastructure (e.g., roads) and utility connections for each housing unit. The land area underlying the onbase units would be leased to the developer for a period of up to 50 years. The land area for the off-base parcel is privately owned, and the developer will own the land, as well as the housing units developed on the land. Chapter 2 details the Proposed Action and alternatives, as well as changes in the Proposed Action from those described in the previous Draft EA, published on July 15, 2013.
