The United States Air Force USAF proposes to construct four buildings to accommodate permanent party unaccompanied enlisted personnel at Tyndall AFB, Florida. The new building will occupy about 42,300 gross square feet and have 161 parking spaces 48,400 square feet. This project includes demolition of an existing softball field, chain link fence, scoreboard, and tennis and basketball courts. The new facility would consist of a masonry building with concrete foundation, structural steel framing, and sloped metal roof. The Air Force relies on highly trained, motivated unaccompanied enlisted men and women to support our increasingly technical air and space missions. The retention of these highly trained airmen is essential to our readiness posture and continuing worldwide presence. Currently, the base has insufficient on base housing to accommodate the unaccompanied enlisted personnel. Many of these enlisted personnel who qualify for dormitory housing cannot live on base due to this deficit. Living off base causes a financial hardship on many of our young airmen due to the rising cost of off base housing and personal transportation. The No-Action alternative would result in continued use of ex1stmg sub-standard dormitory facilities and off base housing. Living off base causes a financial hardship on many of our young airmen due to the rising cost of off base housing and personal transportation. The No-Action Alternative is to maintain existing conditions.
