McConnell AFB uses numerous wing-approved plans to project installation development requirements. These plans propose demolition, construction, renovation, and infrastructure improvement activities 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 General Plan and the community of all existing wing-approved development plans. McConnell AFB seeks to improve the continuing installation development process by evaluating in a single EA all actions proposed in the McConnell AFB wing-approved community of plans for installation development, called the Installation Development EA IDEA. The Proposed Action includes numerous projects, such as new facility construction, facility upgrades, facility repair and renovation, utilities upgrades, community living upgrades, infrastructure upgrades, demolition of aging facilities, and recreational facility upgrades that would be completedimplemented during the next 5 years. The Proposed Action also includes installation development projects approved in the BRAC 2005 process for McConnell AFB. The intent of this IDEA is to address the Proposed Action of implementing installation development actions as found in the community of all existing approved management plans concerning continuing development on McConnell AFB. The scope of the IDEA includes an evaluation of alternatives for the various projects and an analysis of the cumulative effects on the natural and manmade environments. Through this IDEA, McConnell AFB provides a constraints-based environmental impact analysis of installation development actions projected over the next 5 years.
