Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Beale AFB (CA) encroachment
Encroachment could hurt Beale

Beale Air Force Base "may be seriously jeopardized" by future
residential projects, according to documents prepared by the state's
Office of Military and Aerospace Support.

The state agency is proposing that Yuba County agree to have a Regional
Compatibility Plan prepared for land surrounding Beale.

"I think this will make a favorable impression on the Pentagon that here
in Yuba County we want to discuss and negotiate with Beale and the
Pentagon about these issues," Supervisor Hal Stocker said Monday.

The Board of Supervisors will be asked next Tuesday to endorse the study.

"This would allow us to work with Beale and the Department of Defense to
work on land use around Beale," Stocker said. "This is a very important
topic throughout the nation, and the Pentagon considers it to iron out
any issues that might occur."

The study is expected to take 18 months after it is authorized. In less
than two months, the Pentagon is expected to release its proposals for
base closures and realignments.
