Abstract : The United States Air Force (USAF) has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) that evaluates the potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts associated with the privatization of Military Family Housing (MFH) at Charleston Air Force Base (CAFB), South Carolina. The MFH is currently owned, operated, and managed by CAFB. The Proposed Action involves the privatization of MPH at CAFB. Under the Proposed Action, the USAF would transfer ownership of the MFH units, associated infrastructure, and certain utilities that exclusively serve the MFH area to a private sector Project Owner (PO). The USAF would retain ownership of the land, but would transfer management of the land to the PO through a 50-year lease arrangement. The primary components of the Proposed Action are as follows: The USAF would lease four land parcels (Parcelc; A, B, C, and D) to the PO (a total of approximately 294 acres). The USAF would demolish 247 MFH units in Parcel B and convey the remaining 476 units and associated infrastructure/ utilities within all parcels to the PO. The PO would demolish the remaining 71 units in Parcel B, demolish 178 units in Parcel 0, and construct 118 new units in Parcel B. The PO would renovate the remaining 76 units in Parcel 0 and 141 of the 151 units in Parcel A. The PO would construct several new community/ recreational facilities within the parcels.
