Abstract : Travis AFB utilizes numerous wing-approved plans to project installation development requirements. These plans propose demolition, construction, renovation, and infrastructure improvement activities intended to ensure that the installation can sustain its current and future national security operations and mission-readiness status. These activities include installation development projects contained in the Travis AFB General Plan and the community of all existing approved development plans. Travis AFB seeks to improve the continuing installation development process by evaluating, in a single EA, all actions proposed in the Travis AFB wing-approved community of plans for installation development. The scope of this Installation Development EA (IDEA) includes an evaluation of alternatives for the various projects and analysis of the cumulative effects on the natural and man-made environments. The Proposed Action includes numerous projects, such as new facility construction infrastructure projects, community housing, and demolition of aging facilities that would be completed/implemented during the next five years. The intent of this IDEA is to address the Proposed Action of implementing installation development actions as found in the community of all existing approved management plans for the installation concerning continuing development on Travis AFB. Through this IDEA, Travis AFB provides a constraints-based environmental impact analysis of installation development actions projected for the installation over the next five years. A constraints approach enables Travis AFB to evaluate environmental concerns that exist throughout the installation and those unique to specific areas of the installation. The analysis draws from the knowledge gained from extensive recent evaluations for similar types of projects to determine the direct, indirect, and cumulative effects of projects that would be completed as part of the installation's development.
