Massachusetts THE CAPE COD TIMES A done deal After a year of negotiations, Gov. Romney extends base lease through 2051 Amanda Lehmert September 24, 2003 OTIS AIR BASE - Gov. Mitt Romney declared victory yesterday as he ended a year of negotiations by signing a lease extension that will keep the military on the Massachusetts Military Reservation until 2051. It was also a victory for the four Upper Cape Water superintendents. After some 11th-hour negotiations Tuesday, they signed a memorandum of understanding yesterday with Massachusetts National Guard Adjutant Gen. George Keefe setting up a formal means of resolving water supply problems involving the MMR. The lease deal ensures the Air National Guard and Army National Guard a spot on the 20,000-acre installation 25 years past the previous lease expiration date in 2026. Keefe promised an audience of the Cape legislative delegation, three of the governor's top administrators, a slew of local officials, citizens and military personnel that the National Guard would continue to train its soldiers with an eye toward protecting the environment.
