An environmental consulting firm is looking at a range of factors that could interfere with missions at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., to prepare a plan for addressing encroachment at the installation. The effort is part of an Air Force-wide initiative to identify, manage and address the causes of encroachment. The final product of the assessment is an encroachment management plan, which will include recommendations to preserve the installation’s missions and promote compatible development in the community. Fredericksburg, Va.-based Marstel-Day will consider a variety of factors, including urban growth, noise, air and land space restrictions, air and water resources, and energy development. The Installation Complex Encroachment Management Action Plan is expected to take nine to 11 months to complete, reported the Minot Daily News.
