Abstract:

The U.S. Air Force proposes to deactivate the 6594th Test Group at Hickam Air Force Base HAFB, Oahu, Hawaii. The 6594th Test Group was established in 1958 to support U.S. Air Force Systems Command missile and space development operations in the Western Pacific area. It also provided support to the U.S. Coast Guard and Honolulu Joint Rescue Coordination Center on an as-available, non-interference basis. The primary impacts will involve personal and municipal economics. The 59 civilians who receive mandatory separations will be without jobs. The 79 who are scheduled to receive a change to a lower grade will be eligible for grade or pay retention and therefore will not receive less income. The impact will be realized in future actions when the employees pay does not increase as it would had they not been changed to a lower grade. The economic activity of HAFB and its Region of Influence ROI will be reduced due to the civilian displacements and by the 500 military personnel who will be departing Hawaii. It is estimated that there will be a decrease in the total economic impact TEI of HAFB on its ROI of about 3 , from 695.5 million FY 1985 to 671.6 million. There will be a concurrent decrease in economic activity at HAFE, with base retail and commissary sales estimated to decrease 10, from 78.9 million FY 1985 to 71 million after deactivation. Housing impacts are reviewed as positive, as 181 on-base and 319 off-base family housing units would become available.
