GLOSSARY
A-WEIGHTED DECIBEL (DBA): A numerical method of rating human
judgment of loudness. The A-weighted scale reduces the effects of low and high frequencies in order to simulate human hearing.

COMPATIBILITY SUSTAINABILITY STUDY (CSS): A CSS is a
collaborative land use planning effort involving local governments, the Department of Defense and other agencies and organizations. The study evaluates the planning rationale necessary to support and encourage compatible land use development surrounding military installations and use areas. Its purpose is to provide support to sustain and provide flexibility to military missions on the installations / use areas while guiding the long-term land use and quality of life needs of the Territory and local villages.

ACCIDENT POTENTIAL ZONE (APZ): The area immediately beyond
the end of the clear zone of a runway that possesses a high potential for accidents.

AIR INSTALLATIONS COMPATIBLE USE ZONES (AICUZ): A DoD
program designed to promote compatible development around military airfields and to protect the integrity of the installation’s flying mission. Some services refer to the program in a singular form “Air Installation Compatible Use Zone.”

CONSERVATION EASEMENT: Any limitation in a deed, will or other
instrument in the form of an easement, restriction, covenant, or condition, which is or has been executed by or on behalf of the owner of the land subject to such easement and is binding upon successive owners of such land, and the purpose of which is to retain land predominantly in its natural, scenic, historical, agricultural, forested or open-space condition.

AVIGATION EASEMENT: An easement that grants one of the
following rights: the right of flight; the right to cause noise, dust, etc. related to aircraft flight; the right to restrict or prohibit certain lights, electromagnetic signals, and bird-attracting land uses; the right to unobstructed airspace over the property above a specified height; and the right of ingress / egress upon the land to exercise those rights. Also referred to as an aviation easement.

CONSTRAINED SCENARIO: A minimum-impact approach. This
scenario assumes blockages would interfere with the full realization of potential beneficial indirect growth. This scenario does not explicitly identify all constraints, but assumes some mix of blockages.

BIRD/WILDLIFE AIRCRAFT STRIKE HAZARD (BASH): An Air Force
term for wildlife-related hazards to aircraft. The Air Force maintains a program to reduce these hazards at all of its installations.

BOOMTOWNS: The boomtown effect is a time when an existing community “experiences a period of extraordinary growth and expects a rapid decline as the project is phased out” (Hua 1985). The Socioeconomic Impact Study (SIAS) makes note of common socioeconomic boomtown effects that have been observed in the past and are likely to accompany the proposed action. These include direct and indirect employment and business opportunities, in-migration resulting in population increase, labor shortages, inflation, social and cultural change, expectations for the future that may not be realistic, housing shortages, and a loss of employment opportunities once the construction is over (Cocklin and Kelly 1992, Detomasi 1997, Hua 1985, Offshore Oil and Gas Research Group 2004, Yamaguchi and Kuczek 1984). CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (CIP): A timetable for the installation of permanent public structures, facilities, roads, and other improvements based upon budget projections. CLEAR ZONE (CZ): The area of highest accident potential beginning
at the runway threshold and extending 3,000 outward feet. The width of the CZ is based on the class of runway and Service policy.

DAY-NIGHT AVERAGE SOUND LEVEL (DNL): The average equivalent sound level during a 24 hour day, obtained after addition of 10 decibels to sound levels in the night after 10 p.m. and before 7 a.m. DECIBEL (DB / DBA): A unit for describing the amplitude of sound, as it is heard by the human ear. DEVELOPMENT FEES: Fees charged as a precondition to construction or development approval. The most common are: (1) impact fees (such as parkland acquisition fees, school facilities fees, or street construction fees) related to funding public improvements necessitated in part or in whole by the development; (2) connection fees (such as water fees) to cover the cost of installing public services to the development; (3) permit fees (such as building permits or grading permits) for the administrative costs of processing development plans; and, (4) application fees (rezoning, variance, etc.) for the administrative costs of reviewing and hearing development proposals. DIRECT EXPENDITURES: The first round of spending. These include
expenditures related to the construction phase first, and then ongoing military expenditures during the operational phase.

CODE ENFORCEMENT: Code enforcement is a process that works to ensure that property owners maintain property or bring substandard structures and conditions up to Building and Zoning Code standards. COMPREHENSIVE PLAN: In a general sense, this term is used to
describe any planning process that addresses the broad spectrum of issues and resources for a jurisdiction, installation, or other large planning area. For local governments, this can include the jurisdiction’s general plan or a large area specific plan. The Air Force uses this term to describe a compilation plan that includes the plans and specific resource documents and processes determined to be essential for planning and managing an installation’s physical assets in support of the mission.

DIRECT IMPACTS: Impacts that come from direct expenditures. Direct impacts on jobs and income are split into two components: “direct on-site” and “direct from expenditures.” The term “direct on-site” refers to the jobs and incomes of individuals working on project-related construction or on-base as civilian workers. “Direct from expenditures” refers to those jobs and incomes created by the spending of the direct on-site workers. It also refers to the expenditures by construction contractors or the military. Most tables in the SIAS will show direct, indirect, and total impact results for both the construction and operational components. EASEMENT: The right to use property owned by another for a specific purpose. Power line easements are a common example. ENCROACHMENT: The DoD defines encroachment as the cumulative result of any and all outside influences that inhibit normal military training and testing. As communities develop and expand in response to growth and market demands, land use decisions

COMBINED TOTAL IMPACTS: The sum of the impacts of the
construction phase and the operational phase. 10

can push urban development closer to military installations and operation areas. The resulting land use conflicts (encroachment), can have negative impacts on community safety, economic development, and sustainment of military activities and readiness. This threat to military readiness activities is currently one of the military’s greatest concerns.

Regardless of size, an HCP should include measures that would be implemented to minimize and mitigate impacts to the species to the maximum extent possible, and the means by which these efforts will be funded.

INDIRECT EXPENDITURES: Subsequent rounds of spending (after
direct expenditures). These expenditures circulate through the economy, generating spin-off sales and businesses.

ENCROACHMENT CONTROL ACTION PLAN (ECAP): A document
that captures the results of the identification, quantification, and mitigation of existing and potential land use compatibility challenges to a naval installation, range, airspace, and/or training area.

INDIRECT IMPACTS: Impacts created by indirect expenditures. The
term “indirect impacts” is used in the SIAS to cover both indirect effects and induced effects. In a more technical sense, indirect effects are those that occur when the first businesses to receive new outside money spend some of it to buy things from other businesses, and induced effects occur when workers at the new / growing businesses spend their added earnings on goods and services, such as kitchen supplies or haircuts. Most tables in the SIAS will show direct, indirect, and total impact results for both the construction and operational components.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT (EIA): An assessment of the likely human environmental health impact, risk to ecological health, and changes to nature’s services that a project may have. An EIA is a creation of the Environmental Protection Agency used to monitor toxics. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT (EIR): Study indicates that a proposed project may cause one or more significant effects on the environment. An EIR is a document that describes and analyzes the significant environmental effects of a project and discusses ways to mitigate or avoid these effects. The EIR must list alternatives to the proposed project, including not proceeding with the project. An EIR may be certified and the project approved even though there could be potentially significant impacts. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT (EIS): According to the
NEPA, whenever the U.S. Federal Government takes a major Federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment, it must first consider the environmental impact presented in this document.

INFRASTRUCTURE: A general term for public and quasi-public utilities and facilities such as roads, bridges, sewer plants, water lines, power lines, fire stations, etc. IN-MIGRANT WORKER: People coming in from another region often for purposes of obtaining employment. MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING (MOU): A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is a contract between two or more government entities. MILITARY CONSTRUCTION (MILCON): Appropriations fund
major projects such as bases, schools, missile storage facilities, maintenance facilities, medical / dental clinics, libraries, and military family housing.

ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (ENMP):
A program, usually at a military installation, that provides a methodology for analyzing exposure to noise and safety hazards associated with military operations, and land use guidelines for achieving compatibility between the military installation and the surrounding communities.

MILITARY INFLUENCE AREA (MIA): A MIA is an official geographic
planning or regulatory area where military operations impact local communities, and conversely, where local activities may affect the military’s ability to carry out its mission. (These areas are also referred to as a Region of Military Influence (RMI), Military Influence Planning District (MIPD), Military Influence Overlay District (MIOD), Military Influence Disclosure District (MIDD), Airfield Influence Planning District (AIPD), and Areas of Critical State Concern (ACSC)).

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT (FONSI): One of two results
from an Environmental Assessment (EA). It signifies that a project will have no significant impacts on the quality of the environment. The other result is the decision to do an EIS.

FLIGHT PATH: The line connecting the successive positions
occupied, or to be occupied, by an aircraft, missile, or space vehicle as it moves through air or space.

H-2B WORKERS: The H-2B non-immigrant program permits
employers to hire foreign workers to come temporarily to the U.S. and perform temporary non-agricultural services or labor on a onetime, seasonal, peakload or intermittent basis.

MILITARY OPERATING AREA (MOA): A MOA is a three dimensional airspace established to segregate certain non-hazardous flight activities from Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) traffic and to identify Visual Flight Rules (VFR) traffic. Within these areas, the military conducts flight activities, such as acrobatic or abrupt flight maneuvers, intercepts, air combat maneuvering missions, and aerial refueling. These areas are used to maintain military readiness in the air and to train student pilots. MILITARY TRAINING ROUTE (MTR): An airspace of defined
dimensions established for the conduct of military aircraft training flights. MTRs are similar to complex systems of interrelated and interdependent highways in the sky that connect military installations and training ranges. They are used by the DoD to conduct low-altitude navigation and tactical training at airspeeds in excess of 250 knots and at altitudes as low as 200 feet above MSL. These low-level, high-speed routes allow pilots to develop the skills necessary to avoid detection by enemy radar. 11

HABITAT CONSERVATION PLAN (HCP): Incidental take permits
help landowners legally proceed with activities that might otherwise result in the illegal impacts to a listed species. An HCP is a document that supports an incidental take permit application pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Federal Endangered Species Act. HCPs are an evolving tool. Initially designed to address individual projects, HCPs are more likely today to be broad-based plans covering a large area. The geographically broader HCP is then used as the basis for an incidental take permit for a project within the boundaries of the HCP.

GLOSSARY
MULTIPLIER: A factor of proportionality that measures how much
an endogenous variable changes in response to a change in some exogenous variable. For example, how much total employment changes in response to changes in output.

SPECIAL USE AIRSPACE (SUA) : Airspace wherein activities must be
confined because of their nature or wherein limitations are imposed upon aircraft operations that are not a part of those activities, or both. Except for controlled firing areas, SUA areas are depicted on aeronautical charts.

NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY ACT (NEPA): The United
States’ basic national charter for protection of the environment, which establishes policy, sets goals, and provides means for carrying out the policy.

STAY-BEHIND WORKERS: In-migrants that migrate for constructionperiod jobs and stay on Guam. SUBDIVISION ORDINANCE: An ordinance used by local governments that sets forth the regulations that guide site development standards such as road and grading requirements, utility provision, etc. TOTAL IMPACTS: The sum of direct and indirect impacts. Most tables in the SIAS will show direct, indirect, and total impact results for both the construction and operational components. UNCONSTRAINED SCENARIO: A maximum-impact approach. This
scenario assumes no blockages or constraints in the Guam and CNMI environment that might lessen the indirect economic growth potential resulting from the proposed action. The Unconstrained Scenario risks overstating rather than understating impacts, compared to the Constrained Scenario.

NOISE CONTOURS: Continuous lines of equal noise level usually
drawn around a noise source. The lines are generally drawn in 5-decibel increments so that they resemble elevation contours found in topographic maps except that they represent contours of equal noise level. Noise contours are generally used in depicting the noise exposure around airports, highways, and industrial plants.

OVER-SUPPLY SCENARIO (HOUSING): A scenario in which the
housing demand is met, but results in a subsequent over-supply of housing, as population declines when construction ends.

PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT (PUD): Land use zoning which
allows the adoption of a set of development standards that are specific to a particular project. PUD zones usually do not contain detailed development standards; those are established during the process of considering proposals and adopted by ordinance upon project approval.

UNDER-SUPPLY SCENARIO (HOUSING): A scenario under which little or no construction occurs to meet civilian market housing demand during the military construction period. ZONING: Local codes regulating the use and development of
property. The zoning ordinance divides the jurisdiction into land use districts or “zones”, illustrated on zoning maps, and specifies the allowable uses within each zone. It establishes development standards such as minimum lot size, maximum structure height, building setbacks, and yard size.

PROXY GROUP: Proxy groups are populations with expectedly
similar characteristics for which data is available to analyze.

SOCIOCULTURAL: Of, relating to, or involving a combination of social and cultural factors. RANGE AIR INSTALLATION COMPATIBLE USE ZONE (RAICUZ):
Navy / Marine Corps and Air Force program designed to protect public health, safety, and welfare, and to prevent encroachment from degrading the operational capability of air-to-ground ranges. This program is similar to the AICUZ Program. It includes range safety and noise analyses, and provides land use recommendations, which will be compatible with range safety zones and noise levels associated with the military range operations.

RECORD OF DECISION (ROD): A public document, under the NEPA,
that reflects the agency’s final decision, rationale behind that decision, and commitments to monitoring and mitigation.

RESTRICTED AREAS (RA): Restricted Areas are an important asset to the DoD because they allow for the use of weapons for training purposes. These areas are necessary for ground weapons and artillery firing, aerial gunnery, live and inert practice bomb dropping, and guided missile testing. Military Restricted Airspace ensures the combat readiness of aviation and ground combat units while separating these activities from the public and general aviation users. These areas are identified by the letter “R” followed by a number on sectional charts, IFR enroute charts, and terminal area charts. The floor and ceiling altitudes, operating hours, and controlling agency can be found in the sectional chart legend. SOUND ATTENUATION: Sound attenuation refers to special construction practices designed to lower the amount of noise that penetrates the windows, doors, and walls of a building.
