Abstract : This Record of Decision (ROD) documents the Air Force's decision regarding the implementation of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF or F-35) beddown portion of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) decisions and related actions at Eglin Air Force Base (AFB), Floride1.. In making this decision, the information, analysis, and public comments contained in the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for F-35 Beddown at Eglin AFB, Florida, January 2014 (Federal Register, Vol. 79, No. 40, EIS No. 20140047, pg. 11428), were considered, among other relevant factors and supporting materials. This ROD is prepared in accordance with the regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Title 42 U.S.C. 4321-4347; the President's Council on Enviromnental Quality (CEQ) NEP A regulations at 40 CFR, 1505.2, Record of decision in cases requiring environmental impact statements; and 32 CFR 989.21, implementing the Air Force Enviromnental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP). Specifically, this ROD: States the Air Force's decision; Identifies all alternatives considered by the Air Force in reaching the Initial Joint Training Site (IJTS) decision and specifies the alternative considered enviromnentally preferable; Identifies and discusses relevant factors balanced by the Air Force in making the IJTS decision, including economic and technical considerations, the Air Force's missions, and essential national policy considerations, and states how those considerations entered into the decision; States whether all practicable means to avoid or minimize enviromnental harm resulting from the selected alternative have been adopted, and if not, why they were not; and Carries forward and continues the existing mitigation, monitoring, and enforcement program based on the February 2009 ROD and directs its revision to reflect the analyses in the SEIS and this ROD.
