Abstract:

AAFES proposes to construct and operate a new shoppettegas station, Class Six store, and name-brand fast food facility for use by authorized patrons at Joint Base Andrews formerly Andrews Air Force Base, Prince Georges County, Maryland. The Proposed Action complies with the Andrews Air Force Base General Plan and utilizes a site that has previously been developed. The existing AAFES shoppette is outdated and unable to meet customer demand. Additionally, it cannot be updated to meet current building code and energy efficiency standards. The Proposed Action is construction of new facilities that would enhance customer services on the Base and would provide AAFES and the Joint Base Andrews Morale Welfare and Recreation program with additional revenue. Under the No Action Alternative, AAFES would not construct the new facilities and Joint Base Andrews patrons would continue to utilize outdated facilities that have exceeded their useful life and are presently unable to meet customer demand.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 socioeconomics and environmental justice transportation infrastructure and utilities topography, geology, and soils water resources biological resources cultural resources air quality noise hazardous materials and waste, and safety and occupational health . No significant impacts would result from the implementation of the Proposed Action at the preferred site location or from the No Action Alternative.
