Abstract:

As a result of a memorandum signed by President Obama in June 2010, the Air Force has implemented a 2020 by 2020 initiative to reduce both the facility footprint and energy usage by 20 percent by the year 2020. The goal established for Maxwell Air Force Base is to reduce its real property footprint by approximately 1,188,000 square feet by 2020, which averages a reduction of approximately 84,900 square feet annually for the remaining years between 2013 and 2020. The Proposed Action is a Demolition and Consolidation effort for helping to meet these goals. The Proposed Action was formulated based on facility age, historical significance, general operation and maintenance history, renovations required in the future, whether the facility is suitable for occupants, and how complicated consolidation moves of occupants might be. Approximately 50 facilities have been proposed for demolition, and 8 other properties were identified as potential property transfers. Under the No-Action Alternative, the facilities would continue to age and deteriorate. Occupants would eventually have to be relocated, and the buildings closed. The No-Action Alternative would not work toward agency goals of reducing energy usage and operating and maintenance expenditures. The No-Action Alternative would fail to provide adequate planning for eventual moves and facility disposition.
