Eshoo Statement on Plan to Rehabilitate Historic Hangar One and Maintain Moffett Airfield as a Federal Facility

February 11th, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) released the following statement after NASA and the Government Services Administration (GSA) announced the selection of Planetary Ventures, LLC as the preferred lessee to rehabilitate and restore Hangar One, and to manage Moffett Federal Airfield. The airfield is currently managed by NASA Ames Research Center.

Hangar One has been saved and will be restored and rehabilitated for the future. Instead of excessing Moffett Federal Airfield, it will remain a federal facility, managed under a public-private partnership and with NASA Ames no longer operating the field.

The announcement follows an extensive and competitive bid process that began in March 2013 after Rep. Eshoo successfully argued against an effort of the federal government to excess Moffett Federal Airfield.

Rep. Eshoo’s statement:

“Constructed in 1932, the historic Hangar One has long been a landmark in what is now Silicon Valley, and Moffett Federal Airfield has and will continue to play a critical role as home to the 129th Rescue Wing.

“With GSA and NASA’s announcement today, Hangar One has been saved and will be restored and rehabilitated, honoring its place in South Bay history and community identity today. Moffett Federal Airfield will remain a federal airfield under a public-private partnership. By eliminating NASA Ames operating and maintenance costs for Moffett Federal Airfield, taxpayer dollars will be saved.

“I’m deeply grateful for the extensive support from community advocates and leaders, as well as the professionalism of GSA, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus for the Navy’s role in de-skinning and the cleanup of toxic sites surrounding Hangar One, and the commitments from NASA to bring us to this day. I am also grateful for the solid support of my colleagues in the California Congressional Delegation, most especially that of Leader Nancy Pelosi, to save Hangar One and to keep Moffett Airfield a federal facility.”
