Encroachment Is The Downfall Of Oceana

The Inspector General has ruled that Virginia and the city of Virginia Beach have failed to meet a federal demand for controlling development around Oceana Naval Air Station resulting in the ultimate closure of Oceana Naval Air Station.

Virginia Beach refused to permit condemnation of homes and businesses in a high-risk “accident potential zone” along Oceana’s flight paths and is in violation of requirements established by the BRAC Commission.

I actually know a lot of people in Va. Beach who want Oceana gone. I don't like the jet noise personally, and I think tourism could benefit from it's departure. But then I read that it contributes something like 1.5 billion a year to the local economy, and I look at the recent economic growth here which appears to be fueled more by borrowing than production... that's when I begin to worry.

If we're going to forsake Oceana and all the government money it brings in, then we need to start thinking about how to fill the economic void it will leave.

I don't think a "new economy" that needs the latest and greatest lending product to sustain it's growth is going to cut it long term.
