Offutt Air Force Base

Purpose: 

To evaluate community needs and capabilities, and provide assistance to Offutt Air Force Base (AFB), State of Nebraska, City of Bellevue, and Sarpy County in response to possible impairment of mission activities at the military installation by civilian encroachment from surrounding communities. Offutt AFB provides global reconnaissance, real-time intelligence gathering, command and control, information warfare, electronic attack, treaty verification, and combat support to national leadership and warfighting commanders. Extensive civilian residential and commercial development is projected near Offutt AFB’s southern boundary may have a negative impact on mission operations. Residential development is underway near the installation’s northern boundary and may encroach upon the northern Clear Zone. Privately owned land exists in both Clear Zones to the northwest and southeast of the installation boundaries, and protrudes into the lateral clearance line of the airfield to the north. Radio frequency interference from civilian radio traffic could also affect air operations.
