Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Ingleside Naval Station (TX) - two Local Reuse Authorities
Two LRAs for one Navy base

CORPUS CHRISTI - When Naval Station Ingleside's eventual closure became official in December 2005, the community began talking about how best to recover from the more than 4,000 civilian jobs that would be lost.

The Navy will return 912 acres to the Port of Corpus Christi. That property reverts to the port because it deeded the land to the Navy in the 1980s.

That leaves 155 acres, mostly underwater, that the Navy bought. That land might be sold to the highest bidder or given to a redevelopment group to use for economic development.

The city of Ingleside in 2007 established the Ingleside Local Redevelopment Authority to plan the redevelopment of the 155 acres. The federal government approved the group in September of that year.
