Los Angeles, California officials' efforts to transform a decommissioned Navy base into a commercial regional airport have met resistance from Orange County residents, who voted in 2002 to develop the property using an overall plan that calls for parkland, a museum, and business and residential areas. Meg Waters, a spokeswoman for the El Toro Reuse Planning Authority, said the Orange County plan to reuse the former El Toro airport base is a done deal, while Los Angeles' commercial airport concept will not fly. Senator Ken Murray is expected to introduce a resolution in the state Senate in the week of June 16, 2003 supporting the proposed airport.
