This Environmental Assessment EA describes the potential environmental consequences resulting from a proposal to construct a parking lot for Recreational Vehicle RV storage at Fairchild Air Force Base AFB, Washington. The purpose of this action is to provide more parking to the RV Storage Lot , run by Recreational Services. This service provides nearby parking of RVs for Airmen at Fairchild AFB at a lower rate than in the local area. It typically has a waiting list of approximately 35 slots. The RV Storage Lot is located on the Northwest side of Fairchild AFB behind the Petroleum, Oil Lubricants POL storage on POL Loop. There is space surrounding the lot that is unused and in an out-of-the-way location. The addition of another parking lot in this area would provide space for the RVs on the waiting list and provide this service with additional revenue. Recreation Services proposes to construct a 9460 square yard parking lot adjacent to the existing RV Parking Lot, with two entrances from the existing lot. This lot will accommodate 70 more 40-foot slips for RVs. It will be located on the southwest side of the existing lot. The proposed lot will be asphalt with lighting along one side and a perimeter fence set up for security. A second alternative is to secure an existing parking lot that is not being used as the overflow for the RV Storage Lot. This option will not require the addition of more pavements to Fairchild AFB and will be more cost effective. However, it will split the location of the RV Storage Lot, it will not provide as much space or revenue and it may be located in a visible place, causing an eyesore on the base. The final alternative, the no action alternative, will not add any additional parking lots to the RV Storage Lot.
