Abstract:

This environmental assessment EA describes the potential environmental consequences resulting from a proposal to demolish four houses in the LTA area. These houses, which are currently vacant, are inconsistent with base architectural standards and Air Force housing standards. Six resource categories received a thorough evaluation to identify potential impacts. Any noise associated with this action would be temporary and limited to daytime hours. Air quality would not be significantly affected, and no ozone-related emissions would occur from this action. Demolition of the houses would be consistent with the Langley General Plan, and any transportation impacts would be minor. As contributing members to the Langley Field Historic District, demolition of the houses would have an adverse effect on Cultural Resources. Consultation with the State Historic Preservation Office has been completed and specifies the mitigation necessary for this action, to include documentation of the resource and other efforts. This action would have no significant effects on ERP sites or water resources. No long term environmental consequences are anticipated.
