Fairchild AFB uses the Fairchild AFB General Plan Long-Range Development Plan LRDP Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape SERE School Master Plan, and resource management plans including the Integrated Natural Resources Management Plan and Integrated Cultural Resources Management Plan to project installation development requirements. These plans propose demolition construction, infrastructure improvement, natural infrastructure management, and strategic sustainability performance projects intended to ensure that the installation can sustain its current and future national security operations and mission-readiness status. Fairchild AFB seeks to improve the continuing installation development process by evaluating in a single EA selected projects from those proposed in the General Plan, LRDP, SERE School Master Plan, and resource management plans for installation development, called the Installation Development EA IDEA. The Proposed Action is to implement a range of selected projects, such as demolition of aging facilities, new facility construction, facility upgrades, repair and renovation, utilities upgrades, infrastructure improvements, natural infrastructure management and other environmental projects, and strategic sustainability performance projects that would be completed or implemented during the next 5 fiscal years FYs i.e., FY 2013 to FY 2018. The IDEA uses the fenceline-to-fenceline approach, capturing and addressing selected projects within the installation boundary that have been proposed by host and tenant agencies in accordance with Interservice Support Agreements. The intent of the IDEA is to address the Proposed Action of implementing installation development actions for continuing development on Fairchild AFB to ensure that future mission and facility requirements are met. The scope of the IDEA includes a detailed analysis of the selected projects, an evaluation of alternatives applicable to the selected projects and various categories
