Abstract : Pursuant to the Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990, Gentile AFS is scheduled for closure in December 1996. This environmental impact statement has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act to analyze the potential environmental consequences of the disposal and reasonable alternatives for reuse of the station. The document includes analyses of community setting, land use and aesthetics, transportation, utilities, hazardous materials and hazardous waste management, geology and soils, water resources, air quality, biological resources, and cultural resources. Three reuse alternatives were examined: a Proposed Action that includes industrial and commercial development; a Mixed Use Alternative that features commercial, industrial, and residential development; and an Industrial Alternative that features industrial and public facilities/recreation use of Gentile AFS. All alternatives include a Defense Finance and Accounting Service satellite office. A No-Action Alternative, which would entail no reuse of station property, was also evaluated. jg p5
