Abstract:

This EA addresses the Colorado Army National Guards COARNG proposal to construct facilities to accommodate modern helicopter systems and replace undersized and aging structures with larger and modern ones. The purpose of the proposed action is to maintain readiness and proficiency in current aircraft systems operations. Implementation of the proposed action would support the COARNGs need to maintain military readiness and to ensure the ability to integrate with the active component upon mobilization in the event of war or national emergency. The preferred alternative is constructing facilities at Buckley AFB near Aurora, Colorado. The no action alternative, which would involve no new construction, would result in an adverse impact to future COARNG operations.
