Subject: [CPEO-MEF] San Diego airport authority looks at bases
Bases are next focus of airport authority

North County Times (San Diego, CA)
October 26, 2005

Four military bases are about to fall into the sights of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority as it considers where the region's next airport should be built.

Although the chance of a military base succeeding San Diego's Lindbergh Field is considered remote, the state legislation that created the authority mandates that it study the bases and consider shared military and civilian aircraft use.

Authority board member and Lemon Grove Mayor Mary Sessom said that early cursory looks at the bases satisfy the legislation and that she considers the Defense Department lands untouchable. No local military installation is due for major changes as a result of the recent nationwide base closure and realignment.

"They are not available as stand-alone sites and even as joint-use airports, they don't solve our problems because of flight capacity issues," Sessom said.
