Beach greenlights Oceana plan|
VIRGINIA BEACH — A unanimous City Council on Tuesday night approved a wide-ranging package intended to keep the jets flying at Oceana Naval Air Station.
The vote capped four months of work to satisfy the demands of the federal Defense Base Realignment and Closure Commission, which required Virginia Beach to halt and roll back development around Oceana or risk losing the jets.
Acknowledging that the plan was not perfect, council members said it should preserve the Navy’s mission at Oceana, allow the city to grow economically and protect the rights of home owners.
Getting to that point, they said, was painful and divisive . They expressed hope that the city can now begin to move forward.
