Port rejects Ingleside redevelopment group By Fanny S. Chirinos Corpus Christi Caller Times (TX) August 15, 2007Port commissioners declined Tuesday to support Ingleside's proposed committee to oversee Navy base redevelopment.
The 4-3 vote exposed a deep divide among commissioners about whether the port's authority over 912 acres of Navy base land is at risk, and whether an opportunity to gain millions of federal dollars is being missed.
The group proposed by the Ingleside City Council would oversee redevelopment of 155 acres -- all but 38 to 40 underwater -- of Naval Station Ingleside. The base is expected to close by September 2010 and, along with related cuts at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, the impact in direct and indirect lost jobs has been estimated at 7,015.
Establishment of a local redevelopment authority, the group recognized by the government as the go-between for a military community undergoing cuts, has been a hot political battle since the announcement in 2005 that the base would close. Various efforts to establish one have stalled and the port's decision Tuesday presents an obstacle for the Ingleside City Council's proposed group to receive government recognition.
