No more development in Oceana's Clear Zone|
By JON W. GLASS The Virginian-Pilot February 15, 2006
VIRGINIA BEACH - With little debate or fanfare, the City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to restrict development in the riskiest accident-potential zone around Oceana Naval Air Station.
The council banned new development that the Navy says is incompatible in Oceana’s Clear Zone, including homes and businesses. The only uses the Navy considers compatible in the zones are farm crops. The Clear Zone extends 3,000 feet from the end of Oceana’s four runways.
There are only 31 privately owned parcels in the Clear Zone.
"This has not really risen to any high-anxiety level," Councilman Richard Maddox said. "I've not gotten an e-mail, a phone call - nothing."
