Federal bill could mean "no cost" transfer for Weymouth air base If Delahunt bill passes, it could get ball rolling By Jack Encarnacao Quincy Patriot Ledger (MA) June 23, 2009 WEYMOUTH —A bill making its way through Congress could jumpstart the long-delayed development of the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station.
The legislation would expedite the transfer of more than half the base land from the Navy to the local development agency and ultimately to a developer who has proposed building nearly 2,800 homes, 2 million square feet of commercial space and a movie studio in a development called SouthField. It would be the largest and most influential development project of the decade on the South Shore.
The proposed law has been passed by the House armed services committee. It would take away the Navy's ability to consider the fair market value of its property in determining how it is transferred. The bill, co-sponsored by U.S. Rep. William Delahunt, D-Quincy, is expected to come before the full house for a vote as early as this week.
