No finding yet for G-RAMP

WARNER ROBINS -- The U.S. Air Force has yet to issue a final decision on a private-public project near Robins Air Force Base, a city engineer told the Warner Robins Redevelopment Agency board Monday.

The city has been awaiting a determination following the required environmental study needed to build the Georgia-Robins Aerospace Maintenance Partnership project that has been discussed for more than a decade.

The final version of the study was sent to the Air Force in early November. Charlie Beauchea, city engineer, originally predicted it would take about 30 days for a response.

Based on the study, the Air Force needs to issue a finding of no significant impact and a finding of no practicable alternative for G-RAMP to be built on the first 24 acres north of Robins. The city owns 91 acres of land intended for the project.

What G-RAMP will look like is in flux. It was initially slated to be maintenance hangars, but officials have said recently it could be something else related to the base.
