Transfer of ownership of Naval Air Station-Joint Reserve Base Willow
Grove delayed till end of next year
By Mark D. Marotta 21st Century Media News Service/Montgomery News (PA) October 17, 2014With groundwater and radiological issues in need of being addressed, transfer of ownership of the former Naval Air Station-Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove may not start until at least the end of next year, a Navy official confirmed to the Horsham Land Redevelopment Authority Oct. 15.
The Willow Grove base was shuttered in September 2011, under the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Act, and Horsham Township created the HLRA to implement a redevelopment plan for 862 acres that the Navy had designated as surplus. In May 2014, the HLRA issued a Request for Proposals to seek a master developer for the property. After acquiring the site from the Navy, the HLRA was to sell it to the master developer.
Gregory Preston, director of the Navy's BRAC Program Management Office East, reported to the authority’s board on the status of several different tracks related to progress on the project.
