Yuba board calls for Beale land study

In an attempt to prevent Beale Air Force Base from being girdled by suburbia, the state of California has urged the Yuba County Board of Supervisors to consider participating in a study to examine the use of land surrounding the 23,000-acre base.

The study was initially suggested by the Air Force in 2002, but it was not completed, said Sarah Chesebro, a project manager with the state’s Office of Military and Aerospace Support.

Both the military and the county would need to agree to conduct the study, which would be paid for by the Department of Defense, Chesebro said.

The Board will consider the issue at its meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, at 915 Eighth Street, Marysville.
