Department of the Air Force

Record of Decision (ROD) for the Disposal and Reuse of Chanute 
Air Force Base (AFB), Illinois

    On April 28, 1998, the Air Force issued the Fourth Revised 
Supplemental Record of Decision (FRSROD) for the Disposal and Reuse of 
Chanute AFB, Illinois. The decisions included in this FRSROD have been 
made in consideration of, but not limited to, the information contained 
in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Disposal and 
Reuse of Chanute AFB, filed with the Environmental Protection Agency 
and made available to the public on July 19, 1991.
    Chanute AFB closed on September 30, 1993, pursuant to the Defense 
Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990, Pub. Law. 100-526 (10 U.S.C. 
2687 note) and the recommendations of the Defense Base Closure and 
Realignment Commission. The FEIS analyzed potential environmental 
impacts of the Air Force's disposal options by portraying a variety of 
potential land uses to cover a range of reasonably foreseeable future 
uses of the property and facilities by others.
    The Air Force issued a ROD on July 21, 1992 which documented a 
series of decisions regarding the intended disposal of Government-owned 
property. Since that time the Air Force has modified the decisions in 
the ROD four times. This FRSROD modifies certain decisions made in the 
ROD and its supplements, thus completing the disposal decisions for 
Chanute AFB. The Air Force has decided to modify the method of disposal 
for Parcel O, and clarify the disposal of the phone system, roads, and 
rights of way.
    The implementation of these conversion activities and associated 
mitigation measures will proceed with minimal adverse impact to the 
environment. This action conforms with applicable Federal, State and 
local statutes and regulations, and all reasonable and practical 
efforts have been incorporated to minimize harm to the local public and 
the environment.
    Any questions regarding this matter should be directed to Mr. John 
P. Carr, Program Manager at (703) 696-5546. Correspondence should be 
sent to: AFBCA/DB, 1700 North Moore Street, Suite 2300, Arlington, VA 
Barbara A. Carmichael,
Alternate Air Force Federal Register Liaison Officer.
