Scott AFB utilizes 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 activities include installation development projects contained in the Scott AFB General Plan and the community of all existing approved development plans. Scott AFB seeks to improve the continuing installation development process by evaluating, in a single EA, all actions proposed in the Scott AFB wing-approved community of plans for installation development. The scope of this Installation Development EA IDEA includes an evaluation of alternatives for the various projects and analysis of the cumulative effects on the natural and man-made environments. 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 upgrades that would be completedimplemented during the next five years. The Proposed Action also includes projects approved in the BRAC 2005 process for Scott 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 for the installation concerning continuing development on Scott AFB. Through this IDEA, Scott AFB provides a constraints-based environmental impact analysis of installation development actions projected for the installation over the next five years. A constraints approach enables Scott AFB to evaluate environmental concerns that exist throughout the installation and those unique to specific areas of the installation.
