Abstract:

Pursuant to the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act, Richards-Gebaur AFB is scheduled to be closed in September 1994. This FEIS has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act to analyze the potential environmental consequences of the disposal and reasonable alternatives for reuse of the base. The document includes analyses of local community, land use and aesthetics, transportation, utilities, hazardous materialswastes, geology and soils, water resources, air quality, noise, biological resources, and cultural resources. The Proposed Action would include general aviation, cargo, commuter, maintenance, flight training, and military transient activities at the airfield, as well as developing industrial, officeindustrial park, commercial, and military uses of base property. Three alternatives were also examined an Aviation Alternative that features general aviation, maintenance, cargo, commuter, and pilot training operations an Aviation with Mixed Use Alternative that proposes general aviation and private pilot training and an Industrial Alternative that includes a small general aviation airport and a large industrial component. Each alternative also includes mixed non-aviation uses. A No-Action Alternative, which would entail no reuse of the base property, was also evaluated.
