Former Naval Air Station Alameda

Closure History, Property Transfer Summary & Remaining Transferred

Closure History

The 1993 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission recommended closure of NAS Alameda and operational closure occurred on 30 April 1997.  The Alameda Reuse and Redevelopment Authority (ARRA) was designated as the officially recognized Local Redevelopment Authority (LRA).  In 2000, the Department of the Navy (DON) and ARRA executed a No-Cost Economic Development Conveyance Memorandum of Agreement (EDC MOA) which provided a framework for the transfer and conveyance of the majority of the property by the Navy to the ARRA.  Also in 2000, the DON and ARRA entered into a Lease in Furtherance of Conveyance, which allowed the ARRA to control and maintain the property prior to deed transfer. The ARRA was dissolved in 2012, and the City of Alameda became the officially recognized Local Reuse Authority.
