(Supervisors presented the final Naval Air Facility, El Centro Joint Land Use Study)….It had been over a year and a half in preparation.
The Study was funded by a grant from the Department of Defense, Office of Economic Adjustment. The study is a proactive approach to achieve a balance to sustain the missions of NAF and its ranges and the continued economic development of the Imperial County and its communities. All communities participated with the NAF, El Centro in putting the Study together. The study is not a regulatory document. County Planning and Development said some of the strategies in the Study are already part of the County General Plan. They said others could be included at a later date. The Supervisors adopted a resolution accepting the Joint Land Use Study. The resolution will be sent to the other stakeholders and to the Office of Economic Adjustment, as required by the grant.
