This EA evaluates the potential for environmental consequences from the proposed action, one alternative action, and the no action alternative for implementing the MHPI at SAFB. SAFB currently has no on-base housing, but has a requirement for military family housing units for 269 families. The proposed action is for the Air Force to lease approximately 150 acres of undeveloped land to a private real estate development and property management company. The Air Force proposes that the Project Owner PO would construct a mixture of two-, three-, and four-bedroom single-family units and two-, three- and four-bedroom multiplex units, for a total of269 units. The PO would own all housing units and related infrastructure, would lease the land from SAFB, and would maintain and manage the housing area for a minimum of269 military families for 50 years. Under the no action alternative, the Air Force would not implement the MHPI at SAFB and would continue to lack on-base provisions for the family housing needs of its personnel. Under the alternative action, prospective developers can propose an off-base location for developing privatized housing for SAFB under the MHPI no specific locations have been identified at this time. Resources and issues addressed in the EA include air quality soils, geology, and topography water resources biological resources human health and safety solid waste and hazardous materials noise cultural resources land use traffic and transportation and socioeconomics and environmental justice.
