Abstract:

AAFES proposes to expand the BX on JBA-NAFW, Prince George s County, Maryland. The Proposed Action complies with the JBA-NAFW General Plan and utilizes a site that has previously been developed. Currently, the BX operates in three separate buildings Home Traditions Building 1683 constructed in 1973 Four Seasons Building 1805 constructed in 1983 and the BX Building 1811 built in 1995. Each separate facility is out-of-date and inconsistent with current installation building codes and industry standards for retail space. Additionally, each facility lacks the adequate physical space necessary to meet the demand from an increasing customer base located both on- and off-installation. Therefore, the need for the Proposed Action is to upgrade retail facilities on-installation to comply with new building and industry standards and to provide adequate space to meet the current and future retail demand for JBA-NAFW. Under the No Action Alternative, AAFES would not construct the new facilities and JBA-NAFW patrons would continue to utilize outdated facilities that have exceeded their useful life and are presently unable to meet customer demand. This EA evaluates the Preferred Alternative and the No Action Alternative. Resources evaluated in this EA include land use and visual resources transportation infrastructure and utilities geology and soils water resources biological resources socioeconomics, environmental justice, and protection of children cultural resources air quality noise hazardous material and waste management and safety and occupational health. No significant impacts would result from implementation of the Proposed Action at the preferred site location or from the No Action Alternative.
