Abstract:

The 92 Air Refueling Wing has conducted an environmental assessment EA to document the environmental impacts associated with demolishing Hangars 1021, 1023, 1024, 1025, and 1026 on Fairchild AFB. In response to the Air Force directive to reduce facility space by 20 by 2020, Fairchild AFB has identified several opportunities for demolition to include the five hangars addressed in this EA. This proposal was documented along with a no action alternative, and alternatives considered but not carried forward due to infeasibility. The no action alternative was found to not meet the objective or the selection criteria of the purpose and need of the proposed action, but was carried forward as a requirement of NEPA. This document incorporates by reference the Environmental Analysis of the Proposed Demolition of Hangars, Projects 11-0098-11-0102, dated 22 March 2012. The purpose of the proposed action is to comply with the USAF HQ directive known as 2020 by 2020, which requires that AF Installations reduce the physical plant by 20 ... , by 2020. Fairchild AFB is working toward this goal by finding excess space that isnt economical to restore for other purposes and programming it for demolition. The Proposed Action will demolish five hangars on the airfield, leaving 18 hangars in place. The current missions at Fairchild AFB require 7 hangars, so the Proposed Action would leave 11 excess hangars on the airfield.
