Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Oceana neighbors fear Navy easement crackdown
Some Oceana businesses fear Navy-forced closures

The Virginian-Pilot

VIRGINIA BEACH ? Business owners around Oceana Naval Air Station are
worried that the Navy wants to shut them down. 

The Navy has told more than three dozen businesses that they may be
violating land easements that the federal government bought in the 1970s
and ?80s to protect the jet base from encroachment. 

The businesses, including some long-established ones, are in high-noise
zones and potential-crash zones on the air station?s western and
southern boundaries, from Commerce Parkway and down London Bridge Road. 

Owners are alarmed at the prospect of a Navy crackdown. Many said they
were unaware of the easements, which prohibit homes and certain types of
commercial activities, including retail shops.
