Abstract:

The EIS was prepared to analyze the potential environmental consequences of the Proposed Action, the Outgrant Alternative, and No-Action Alternative. The Proposed Action is a transferleaseback of Brooks AFB, Texas, property. Under the Outgrant Alternative, the Air Force would outgrant portions of the base but would retain ownership. The project is intended to improve mission effectiveness and reduce the cost of providing quality installation support at Brooks AFB. The analysis examines the reasonably foreseeable environmental consequences of the Proposed Action and the Outgrant Alternative under three different land use scenarios. The land use scenarios represent varying approaches to implementing the BCBP in order to demonstrate the range of potential development and associated impacts that may occur under the BCBP. The No-Action Alternative would be a decision not to proceed with the BCBP.
