Monday, July 24, 2006 | The Airport Authority has chosen Miramar for a new airport, in my mind it is the best choice. I think they should not be asking for the Marines to give it to us, we should swap land and dollars for Miramar. How about trading Brown Field for the jets to do touch and go’s. Build the Marines new Heliport facilities on Camp Pendleton. Miramar has housing so we would have to replace that for our military families. The new housing could be on or off base, which would be the Navy’s choice. We should do the new housing and base facilties first, then have the military would turn over all of Miramar for our “new world class airport.” The construction of the new base facilities, housing and then a new airport would provide thousands of jobs for many years.
