There's good news for the historic North Blimp Hangar at the old MCAS Tustin. According to O.C. Supervisor Bill Campbell,...
"The Board [of Supervisors] directed OC Parks to prepare a concept plan to establish a regional park at the former Marine Corps Air Station Tustin and to preserve the North Blimp Hangar. In conjunction with the concept plan, a number of analyses will be completed, including:
- A re-evaluation of the requirements necessary for the public to access the hangar and the costs to satisfy those requirements.
- A recreation demand and market evaluation of potential uses for the park, including the hangar.
- An assessment of the costs to develop park uses adjacent to the hangar.
- Exploration of the financing options available to OC Parks and the County to develop, operate, and maintain the regional park.
