Abstract:

The Air Force is considering transfer of an approximately 5 acre parcel of land at the former Radar Annex to the John Ancrum SPCA for construction of a new facility. The current John Ancrum SPCA Facility provides inadequate space and amenities to maintain the growing animal populace it experiencing. Additionally, it is 26 years old and is not up to current standards for this type of facility. A new facility is desired and has been designed and funded. Under the Proposed Action, a new SPCA facility would be constructed on an approximate 5 acre parcel of land currently owned by the Air Force at what is known as the former Radar Annex. No construction activities or operational changes to current SPCA activities would occur under the No Action Alternative. Resources considered in the impact analysis are safety and occupational health, air quality, noise, solid waste management, water resources, biological resources, cultural resources, land use, traffic and transportation, geology and soils, socioeconomic resources coastal zone consistency, hazardous materials and wastes, and environmental justice. No significant environmental impacts would result from implementation of the Proposed Action or from the No Action Alternative.
