Present Land Use
The proposed site is vacant land that the city of Ukiah intends to lease to the State of California for the relocation of an existing air attack base fire station. The air attack base station protects the county and other surrounding counties.

Document Description
The proposed new facilities at the Ukiah Air Attack Base (UAAB) would include a 4,167 square-foot air operations building, with an elevated dispatch area to control flight and loading operations, a 3,200 square-foot warehouse/shop building, a 2,915 square-foot aircraft hanger, a 150 square-foot hazardous material building, a fire retardant mixing, storage building, a fire retardant mixing, storage building and loading facility, a 1,200 square-foot taxiway, an air attack parking pad, four aircraft retardant-loading areas, new water, sewer, electrical, and phone lines, and sidewalks. The new UAAB would be accessed by a new driveway that would intersect Airport Road on the cast side of the project area, west of the California Northern Railroad tracks. Site work needed for the new facilities would include site grading, asphalt paving, installing, larger power lines with utility tie-ins, landscaping, and fencing. The facilities at the old UAAB would be demolished. The UAAB is a primary fire control facility for the North Coast fire protection system. Its initial attack area is 3.5 million acres, and it protects 425,000 acres of wildland with close proximity to dense urban areas. The base provides fire protection for Mendocino, Lake, Sonoma, and Humboldt counties, with the protection area including many regional cities close to wildland areas, and numerous state parks.
