Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Bowdoin College at Brunswick Naval Air Station (ME)
Naval Air Station runways close tonight

January 29, 2010

The latest milestone in the meticulously planned closure of the Brunswick Naval Air Station (NASB) will come tonight, at 10 p.m., when its two massive 8,000-foot runways close.

The base - the last active-duty Department of Defense airfield in the northeast - was a casualty of the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission Report (BRAC). It will close entirely in May 2011.


With approval from the U.S. Department of Education, Bowdoin is set to receive 175 developable acres on the west side of the base as a public benefit (no-cost) conveyance—an 80 percent increase over the existing 215-acre campus.

However, the College will not know exactly what land it is getting until the Navy issues its environmental impact statement, now slated to be released this summer. Until then, Bowdoin is in a "holding pattern," said Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration & Treasurer Katy Longley.
