Today, the White House released their plan to fix housing:
I only skimmed it and I didn’t see the one thing that could really make a difference, which is re-purposing federally-owned real estate for residential use.
Let’s start with MCAS Miramar, which is 23,116 acres in the middle of San Diego that would be ideal for residential development. It’s big enough that you could have something for everybody!
We had our chance once:
In 1954, the Navy offered NAS Miramar to San Diego for $1 and the city considered using the base to relocate its airport. But it was deemed at the time to be too far away from most residents and the offer was declined.
Let’s leave the airport where it is and redevelop Miramar!
