Abstract : Barksdale Air Force Base (BAFB), is proposing to privatize all military housing currently located on the base. This includes Main Base Housing, Capehart, and Heritage Heights as well as the proposed new housing areas--New Heritage Heights (the undeveloped parcel south of Heritage Heights) and the Horse Stable area. The purpose of this project is to provide safe, quality, affordable housing for eligible military members and their dependents stationed at BAFB and detached units within the BAFB commuting distance. Two hundred Capehart units must be replaced to meet current life safety codes and to provide a comfortable and appealing living environment comparable to the off-base civilian community. In addition, 361 new units must be constructed to meet BAFB housing requirements.
