Hundreds of homes predate Oceana or Navy development guides|

VIRGINIA BEACH - An analysis of city property records confirms what many residents and city officials have long argued: Hundreds of homes in the highest-risk areas around Oceana Naval Air Station were built before it became an air base and before Navy flight patterns exposed some neighborhoods to potential jet crashes.
The findings, critics said, raise questions about the fairness of the Defense Base Realignment and Closure Commission’s ultimatum that the city and state must condemn and buy homes and businesses in Accident Potential Zone 1 around Oceana, or lose the base’s jets.
A new city report also shows that more than 3,400 houses, apartments, duplexes and mobile homes lie in APZ-1 – nearly twice as many as the 1,800 the city initially estimated.
