Santa Rosa airfield park could become a reality - after a decade By KEVIN McCALLUM SANTA ROSA PRESS DEMOCRAT (CA) May 14, 2011Dave Hermann moved into his home in the Air Center East subdivision in the summer of 2001 expecting his young daughters would grow up in a neighborhood with a park nearby.
After all, that's what the Cobblestone Homes sales materials promised. ...The subdivision sits on the site of the former Santa Rosa Naval Auxiliary Air Station. The X-shaped runways were built in 1942 for World War II bombers, fighters and transports, and used again as a home for Navy fighter planes in the Korean War. It was decommissioned in 1952 and used as a civilian airfield until it closed in 1993.
...One was the discovery that the dirt covering most of the 3-acre park site was contaminated with hydrocarbons, most likely from diesel fuel and motor oil. Mounds of dirt stockpiled by the developer on the 3.7- acre site south of Yeager Drive also contained contamination. The contamination was not considered severe, but had to be addressed, according to a study.
