I don't know all the details, but I don't understand why everyone's complaining. They wanted to save the base, and they did. And now they want to upgrade it, great! They need more room because other bases were shut down instead of yours.

It seems strange that the Horsham Township managers were quick to hear what the Shaw Group Inc.wanted to do last year if they purchased the land from the Navy and slow if not unwilling to work with the State.They should remember their interests are with the community not develpoers.I get the sense they did not want the base saved.The 2005 BRAC report says "Establish a contiguous enclave for the 111th FW (ANG)and the 270th Eng.Installation Squadron (ANG)sufficient to support operations of those units,including flight operations,and compatible with the joint use of the former NAS
as a civilian airport".I thought once the President signed, the report became law.Should we only accept parts of the report that we like personaly.I hope the two sides can work together,whatever becomes of the base will affect the region not just Horsham for years to come,stop the pouting and political granstanding.
