Abstract : The United States Air Force (USAF) conducted an Environmental Assessment (EA) of the potential environmental and social consequences of implementing the proposed Basewide Comprehensive Transportation Plan 2012 at Peterson Air Force Base (AFB). The Peterson AFB Blueprint 2050 Plan was utilized as the existing condition around which alternatives were developed. Alternatives were developed by focusing on two goals: 1) Process the peak vehicle demand at gates with a reasonable level of delay. 2) Provide at least 7,600 remote parking spaces in order to accommodate the growth and to replace parking spaces lost by locating the new facilities identified in the Blueprint 2050 Plan. Seven alternatives, (Alternatives 1 through 7) and a No Action Alternative were initially developed to address the purpose and need for the project. Early screening determined that of these alternatives, only four (Alternatives 1, 2, 3, and 4) had merit to continue through the screening process to be considered for the Preferred Alternative. Alternative 1 was determined to best meet the purpose and need and was selected as the Preferred Alternative. In addition to the Preferred Alternative, a No Action Alternative (as prescribed by CEQ regulations) was considered and evaluated in the EA. The No Action Alternative would not provide any major transportation improvements beyond continuing the existing level of maintenance and repair of the existing transportation and parking system.
