Abstract : The purpose of the Proposed Action is to provide military family housing (MFH) on Elmendorf AFB that meets Air Force housing standards by conveying 986 MFH units, constructing 208 new MFH units (total of 1,194 MFH units) and leasing undeveloped land to a contractor who would be responsible for renovation, demolition/construction of MFH on Elmendorf AFB. Due to advancing age and deterioration, many of these units require extensive maintenance and repair, and no longer meet current Air Force family housing standards. The Proposed Action would include the lease of approximately 352 acres of land on the adjacent U.S. Army Fort Richardson. This land would be transferred to Elmendorf AFB, and be leased to the contractor who would construct approximately 570 of the housing units and a new access road on this property. This EA evaluates the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, the Alternative Action, and the cumulative impacts of other actions announced for the project area. Under the No Action Alternative, military personnel and dependents would continue to reside in the existing MFH units on Elmendorf AFB. Resources considered in the impact analysis were: noise; land use; air quality water resources, hazardous materials and wastes; biological resources; cultural resources; geological resources; infrastructure and utilities; public services; and, safety. With the incorporation of specific design features and best management practices, including the preparation of a Moose Habitat Compensation Plan by the Air Force, significant impacts would not be expected to result from the Proposed Action, Alternative Action, or the No Action Alternative.
