Alameda Sun: Navy Gives Notice of Intent to Sign, February 14, 2013
NOTICE OF INTENT TO SIGN
FINDING OF SUITABILITY TO TRANSFER (FOST)
FOR FORMER NAVAL AIR STATION ALAMEDA
ALAMEDA POINT, CALIFORNIA
The Department of the Navy (DON) announces its intention to sign a Finding of Suitability to Transfer (FOST) for portions of Alameda Point (formerly Naval Air Station [NAS] Alameda) in Alameda, California. Alameda Point is located on the northwestern tip of Alameda Island, which is on the eastern side of San Francisco Bay. In 1936, the U.S. Navy acquired the land from the U.S. Army and built NAS. The base was operated as an active naval facility from 1940 to 1997. The Draft FOST for 1,380 acres of Alameda Point (including both upland and submerged land) concludes that property specifically identified in that document is environmentally suitable for transfer in accordance with Section 120(h) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act. Maps and descriptions of the property proposed for transfer are included in the FOST.
