More Homes In Crash Zone Than City Thought
Sara Straeten Reporting WKTR-TV 3 News (Hampton Roads, VA) October 4, 2005
Local and state officials are trying to figure out how to satisfy the Base Realignment and Closure Commission.
Part of the deal is to starting to buy up homes that are encroaching on Oceana by March. Otherwise, the jets head south to Florida. City officials in Virginia Beach tell Your NewsChannel 3 that about 1,600 homes, which are in the crash zone, were not counted in the original estimate.
That now means a total of 3,400 homes may eventually be bought.
"I think that $268 million is worth it to save Oceana," said Elaine Roberts, who lives in Virginia Beach.
"If they will guarantee to leave it open for 20 years, then sure," said Jack Rose, who has lived at the beach for several years.
