McConnell AFB uses numerous 22d Air Refueling Wing 22 ARW-approved plans to project installation development requirements. These plans propose demolition, construction, infrastructure improvement, natural infrastructure management, and strategic sustainability performance projects intended to ensure that the installation can sustain its current and future national security operations and mission-readiness status. These projects include installation development projects contained in the McConnell AFB Installation Development Plan, the Core Area Development Plan, the Krueger Recreation Area Development Plan, the Kansas Air National Guard Master Plan, and the community of all other existing Wing-approved development plans. McConnell AFB seeks to improve its understanding of the potential environmental consequences associated with the continuing installation development process by evaluating in a single EA selected projects from the projects proposed in the McConnell AFB Wing-approved community of plans for installation development, called the Installation Development Environmental Assessment IDEA. The Proposed Action is to implement a range of selected projects, such as demolition of aging facilities, new facility construction, facility upgrades facility repair and renovation, utilities upgrades, community living upgrades, infrastructure improvement recreational upgrades, natural infrastructure management, and strategic sustainability performance projects that would be among those proposed to be completed or implemented during the next 5 years from Fiscal Year FY 2012 to FY 2017. The IDEA uses the fenceline-to-fenceline approach, capturing and addressing in some form identified projects within the installation boundary that have been proposed by host and tenant agencies in accordance with Interservice Support Agreements. The intent of this IDEA is to address the Proposed Action of implementing installation development actions for continuing development.
