Navy To Hold Public Meetings On Potential NAVWAR Redevelopment Into Transit Hub



Shared By Raye Scott | Scott Finn & Associates

A plan to build a transit hub with a connection to San Diego’s airport on Navy property is taking another step forward.

The Navy and San Diego’s regional planning agency, SANDAG, are working together to potentially develop a transit hub on the site of the NAVWAR Old Town Complex. Last month, the Navy and SANDAG signed an agreement to redevelop the 70-acre site.

But much more work remains to be done. This week, the Navy will begin holding a series of meetings to get the public to weigh in on the proposal, which is part of the environmental review process. The Navy will hold its first meeting Thursday from 4-7 p.m. at the Liberty Station Conference Center. Public comments can also be submitted online.

Jennifer Van Grove, who covers growth and development for The San Diego Union-Tribune, joined Midday Edition on Monday to discuss the project.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly state the meeting was Wednesday. It is on Thursday. We regret the error.
