Navy renews vow to skin Hangar One To save landmark structure, 'There needs to be a plan' for reuse, Eshoo says by Daniel DeBolt Mountain View Voice (CA) January 27, 2010Congresswoman Anna Eshoo said Tuesday that a serious plan for reusing Hangar One must be in place if Congress is likely to fund restoration of the historic landmark at Moffett Field.
"If part of the partnership is the Congress of the United States, they are going to want to know what we want to do with the money," Eshoo told the Voice. "They are going to want to know if it makes sense. Is it going to be used for a museum or used by others in the community? There needs to be a plan."
Concern over Hangar One has reached new heights since Jan. 14, when Navy spokesperson Kathryn Stewart told the Moffett Restoration Advisory Board that the Navy plans to tear off Hangar One's siding in November of this year. With no plan or funding in place to re-skin it, local elected officials have unanimously opposed the idea of leaving the historic structure as a steel skeleton.
