Abstract:

The US Air Force USAF is proposing to construct a youth center located on Eielson Air Force Base AFB, Alaska. The youth facility would be a replacement to existing facilities which are undersized and outdated. Currently, the youth program occupies two different buildings separated mile apart due to space limitations. The proposed Eielson AFB Youth Center would consist of a 17,000 square foot facility with an 8,000 square foot parking area. Approximately 7,000 cubic yards of soils would be disturbed and result in the loss of .57 acres of floodplain and associated vegetation. The facility would be located within 1,000 feet of Eielson AFB elementary, junior high, and high schools as well as the base residential area.
