The Youth Center and RV Expansion Lot projects would include construction encompassing approximately 8.2 acres of land at two locations within the boundaries of Buckley AFB. The Youth Center project would include construction of a building and landscaped area with a playground. The RV Expansion Lot would include sufficient space to provide storage of large-size RVs. FACTORS CONSIDERED IN DETERMINING THAT NO ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT IS REQUIRED The Environmental Assessment EA analyzed the environmental impacts of alternatives to the proposed action taking into account all relevant environmental resource areas and conditions. The USAF has examined the following resource areas and conditions and found that the proposed action would either have no or inconsequential impact air quality expansive soils, hazardous materials, hazardous wastes, socioeconomics, utilities, biological resources, traffictransportation, water resources, radon, safety and pollution prevention.
