Talks over Saufley end

The Navy ended negotiations with a developer over an enhanced use lease to turn 104 acres at a former air station into a research/business park. Navy officials say it would have been too costly to move three commands from Saufley Field, Fla., to nearby Naval Air Station Pensacola. Uncertainty over funding for the relocation and renovations forced the Navy to cancel the project with DCK Worldwide. Saufley Field is an active Navy facility 10 miles north of NAS Pensacola. Once a full-fledged air station, it's now an outlying landing field. (Source: Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast, 09/12/12) Previous
