Abstract:

The Air Force Institute of Technology AFIT has analyzed existing facilities and infrastructure, while simultaneously forecasting future needs and objectives to enable it meet its stated mission. AFIT is proposing the development of a comprehensive planning strategy, which would extend through 2030 through the implementation of a Master Plan. The proposed expansion and renovations addressed in the Master Plan need to be completed expeditiously, without interrupting AFIT s mission, while maximizing available resources. The purpose of campus expansion and existing building renovations is to ensure that the AFIT campus facilities are sizable to facilitate both short-term and long-term growth of students and personnel. This environmental assessment EA evaluated the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative. Resources considered in the impact analysis were land use, air quality, noise, geological resources, water resources, biological resources, cultural resources, socioeconomics and environmental justice, infrastructure, health and safety, and hazardous materials and wastes. Analyses in this document identifed minor short-term adverse impacts on air quality and noise resulting from the proposed construction activities related to AFIT campus redevelopment. The EA was made available to the public on March 21, 2011, for a 30-day review period.
