Consistent with the USAF Housing Privatization Program, the ACC proposes to convey MFH units, grant leases of land, and transfer responsibility for providing housing at Mountain Home AFB to a private developer the Project Owner PO. The transition period would begin upon completion of contractual matters initiating the Proposed Action and would last for up to 6 years. At all times during the transition period, sufficient numbers of units at Mountain Home AFB for all eligible pay grades would be maintained. Specific transactions that would occur between Mountain Home AFB and the PO as part of the Proposed Action are as follows Mountain Home AFB would convey the existing 1,155 MFH units to the PO. Mountain Home AFB would grant 50-year leases for four parcels of land Parcel A 40.76 acres consisting of the Woodland Groves neighborhood Parcel B 25.25 acres consisting of the Eagle View neighborhood Parcel C 435.13 acres consisting of Falcon Estates the former Gunfighter Manor, Trinity Heights, Coyote Terrace, Elk Heights formerly Desert Vista, Gunfighter Circle, Gunfighter Manor, Desert Skies Estates, and Sagebrush View including the former Dunes neighborhood Parcel D 1.04 acres consisting of the Housing Office. The PO would continue use of 793 units in their present condition and renovate 3 units in the Gunfighter Circle neighborhood. During the first 6 years, it is assumed that 359 inadequate MFH units in Parcels B and C would be demolished and subsequently the PO would construct 263 new MFH units. However, the USAF Housing Privatization Program has identified several desired features for new construction and renovation of MFH, its privatized communities, facilities maintenance, and property management for Mountain Home AFB to include construction of a community centerclubhouse.
