I will describe a concept of CW Proton Linac on the Fermilab site. Based on output energy linac is segmented in three parts, 1GeV, 3GeV and 8GeV. It is located near existing Fermilab Proton Source with intension that each section of the linac can be used as soon as it is commissioned. The whole design is based on designs suggested for Proton Driver and ProjectX. The suggested sitting and linac segmentation allows for the construction to start immediately. Additional benefits comes from the fact that present linac (the oldest machine in Fermilab complex) get replaced and exiting Proton Source preserve functionally for many years in the future.

I will also describe a concept for a storage ring in the Fermilab Booster tunnel to accumulate 1-GeV beam from the Project-X H- Linac. The ring is made out of permanent magnets, and its primary purpose is to accumulate beam for the Booster. The ability to chop bunch-by-bunch in the linac creates many opportunities to package beam for different users in the proposed storage ring. For example, the stored beam can be used for a Pulsed Spallation Source, for a muon-to-electron conversion experiment based on a 100-Hz FFAG ring (Prism/Prime), and/or for a pulsed beam for Short Baseline Neutrino Experiments. These specially packaged beams can be used either directly or after acceleration in the Booster.
