Abstract : This EA evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the revitalization of MFH areas at Nellis AFB. Project activities could be accomplished by an Air Force contractor or through privatization, in which the MFH units and utilities would be conveyed to a private developer and the developer would be responsible for conducting project activities. Due to advancing age, over 98 percent of the MFH units at Nellis AFB do not meet modern standards. The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), in its current Defense Planning Guidance (DPG) directive has tasked the Department of Defense (DoD) services to revitalize divest through privatization, or demolish inadequate housing by or before fiscal year 2010. In order to comply with the directive and to provide suitable MFH for military personnel stationed at the base, the Proposed Action would include renovating or demolishing inadequate MFH units and constructing new MFH units. This EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act to analyze the potential environmental consequences of the Proposed Action, Alternative 1 Alternative 2, and the No-Action Alternative. Under the No-Action Alternative, no activities associated with revitalizing the MFH areas would occur. The Air Force would not be able to comply with the directive or provide suitable MFH for military personnel stationed at the base. Aging and inadequate MFH units would not be renovated or demolished and no new MFH units would be constructed. The Air Force would continue to incur the costs associated with maintaining aging and inadequate MFH units.
