The purpose of the Proposed Action is w provide access to safe, quality. well-maintained housing in a community where Air Force members and their families will choose to live a community consisting of neighborhood settings that include amenities such as common areas and recreational opportunities identified as desired features. Determining the specific need for required housing at MAFB involved estimating the number of appropriate private sector housing units available to militar families within 20 miles or a 60-minute commute. The need associated with housing on WAFB is the result of a Housing Requirements and Market Analysis conducted lor WAFB in 2005 to identify the housing units available to military members in the private community and determine the number of units that the Air Force needs to provide at WAFB for its personnel by calendar year 1010. The total military family housing MFH requirement for WAFB factored in shortfalls in the available private sector housing resulting in a housing requirement on WAFB of 932 units. Prior to 2005. and ongoing currently, WAFB began a military construction MILCON process to demolish and construct several new homes within the MFH areas. The MILCON process is separate from the MHPI and has been evaluated in previous NEPA documentation. At the conclusion of the MILCON process. WAFB will have a total of 933 housing units via a combination or older units and newly constructed units distributed throughout five different housing areas.
