Abstract:

The purpose of the action is to provide MFH at Vance AFB that meets U.S. Air Force AF housing standards by demolishing existing units and constructing new units. The need for the action is to provide modern and efficient housing for non-commissioned officers and their dependents stationed at Vance AFB. Under Phase I, Vance AFB has identified the need to demolish and replace 59 MFH units at Vance AFB as part of the installations Fiscal Year 2003 Capital Improvement Program. Under the No Action Alternative, Vance AFB personnel would continue to use existing MFH units. There would be no change from the existing conditions at the installation. This alternative would not address the 71 FTWs current requirement to upgrade these MFH units to meet AF quality of life standards. This EA has been prepared to evaluate the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative. Resources considered in the impact analysis are noise, land use, air quality, safety, geological resources, water resources, biological resources cultural resources, socioeconomic resources, environmental justice, infrastructure and utilities and hazardous materials and wastes.
