Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Chanute Air Force Base (IL) 53-acre transfer
Transfer of base property to village nears final phases

Rantoul Press editor
February 19, 2013

If it seems like it's taken a long time for the cleanup and transfer of property of the former Chanute Air Force Base to the village of Rantoul, it's only because it has.

The base, which was one of the oldest in the United States Air Force, closed in 1993. Twenty years later, the cleanup by the Air Force and transfer continues.

The transfer of a significant amount of additional property - including land and buildings - will take place this year and could be wrapped up in 2014.

The first transfer, of 53 acres and six buildings, should be completed this spring.

It involves airport acreage used for the Rantoul National Aviation Center and airport support.
