ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and Air Force policy and procedures (32 CFR part 989), the National Guard Bureau is issuing this notice to advise the public of its intent to prepare an EIS to assess the potential environmental impacts that could result from an aircraft conversion and implementation of the proposed construction and demolition program for the Massachusetts National Guard at Westfield-Barnes Airport in Westfield, Massachusetts.

The proposal consists of an aircraft conversion from 15 A–10 primary assigned aircraft (PAA) and 2 backup aircraft inventory (BAI) to 18 F–15 PAA and 2 BAI aircraft.
