Notice of Availability of the Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis Master Plan Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement
Department of the Army, DoD.
Notice of availability.
This announces the availability of the Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis Master Plan Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (DPEIS), which assesses the potential environmental impacts of implementing three master planning alternatives. Alternative 1 (No Action Alternative) includes the continuation of: The currently identified stationed population reductions, as reflected in the Army Stationing and Installation Plan; the projected reductions in the Real Property Maintenance Activity budget program for facility maintenance and repair; the "zero investment" maintenance expenditures for vacant historical facilities, and the projected reductions in the Base Operations budget program for utilities and other engineering services. Alternative 2 (Reuse of Facilities and Property by Federal Users) would result in an adaptive reuse of currently vacant historical facilities using the existing appropriated funds process. This maybe accomplished by bringing to Fort Sam Houston: Additional military missions through individual stationing decisions that take advantage of the capabilities of Fort Sam Houston; and/or additional federal missions through individual stationing decisions that take advantage of the capabilities of Fort Sam Houston. Alternative 3 (Reduction of Underutilized/Unutilized Property through Lease, Sale, or Removal) would result in the reduction of underutilized/unutilized facilities and property on Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis, in addition to changes in the Land Use Plan. The reduction in underutilized/unutilized property may be accomplished through: Outgrant leases to the city, county, state, private citizens, businesses, or investors; sale to the city, county, state, private citizens, businesses, or investors; removal from the site; or demolition. The Army may select any one alternative or a combination of alternatives for future activities and planning at Fort Sam Houston.
The comment period for the DPEIS will end 45 days after publication of the notice of availability in the Federal Register by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
