Abstract : Name of Proposed Action. Demolition of Buildings 5303 and 5312 at Joint Base Elmendorf- Richardson (JBER), Alaska. Description of the Proposed Action and No Action Alternative. Under the Proposed Action, the United States Air Force (USAF) would demolish two facilities at JBER that are in poor condition to alleviate the burden of maintaining these buildings and help meet the President's 20/20 by 2020 challenge, which aims to reduce owned, leased, and USAF-led joint base real property and associated operating costs 20 percent by the year 2020. The Proposed Action includes all phases of work necessary to demolish the two buildings, including demolition, removal and abatement of asbestos and/or lead-based paint (LBP), removal of the foundations and footings, removal of buried utilities, backfilling, and restoration of any vegetation at Building 5312. The Building 5303 area will be re-surfaced with asphalt or gravel for use as a parking lot. In contrast to the Proposed Action, under the No Action Alternative, the USAF would not demolish Buildings 5303 and 5312. To enable continued use, the buildings would need to be renovated. Implementation of the No Action Alternative would interfere with the USAF's compliance with the 20/20 by 2020 goal.
