aaallllllllrrrrrIIIIIGGGHHHTTT!!!!! I'm ready to start a fight here.  box  So bring it on!

With the argument going on with Miramar being the desired replacement for SAN I know that Brown Field was mentioned and amazingly dropped as a possibility. Oh pray tell, why was it dropped again? I heard something about the environmental issues etc. blah blah blah. I think that it was just a basic drop for the want of Miramar. Brown field seems like a good possiblity. It's fairly open there, pretty flat, and not alot of homes to be affected...more homes will be affected at Miramar. So, I just want to hear what the arguments are for dropping Brown Field as a replacement airport for SAN.

This page summarizes the different sites and why they were excluded:


For Brown, it was eliminated for extraordinary environmental costs, further delineated as existence of extensive biological resources, isolated prehistoric and historic sites on and adjacent to site, potential for paleontological resources, and significant airspace constraints.

Wow. That fight lasted what? 30 seconds?

As stated above: Otay Mountain. It can't be removed to make it possible. It's Federal protected land compliments of Bill Clinton who signed off on the 18,500 acres in 1997 (right after the cargo facility was dropped sealing it's fate as a commercial airport). Nothing amazing or arbitrary about it. The law is clear on airport site selection. State land (there is none), Military airfields (Miramar being optimum), private land (eminant domain) then Federal environmentally protected sites. What's at Miramar will be moved long before the Fed approves such a proposal to make Brown work as a commercial airport.

Good place for Ospreys and Helo's though....

To keep your base (Miramar), 20,000 people civilians will lose their homes. You happy?

Miramar won't stand a chance when it comes to this in about 10 years. One might as well vote yes and get the ball rolling, because at the end of the day, the Marines will not be asked, but told to leave. At least with joint use they can keep some operations vs. the inevitable "zero" operations.

Don't think it'll play out like that? Stick around a couple of years.
