SAN PEDRO : Accord Near on Building More Air Force Housing

September 18, 1993

Gov. Pete Wilson, hoping to keep a highly prized Air Force space division from moving out of state, said Friday that his Administration is finalizing a deal with the military that would allow the construction of more Air Force housing in San Pedro.

In a speech to the South Bay Chamber of Commerce in Manhattan Beach, Wilson said he expected the agreement to be completed within a week. Officials said the deal would allow the Air Force to build 250 housing units at San Pedro's Angels Gate Park.

For years, the Air Force has complained about a lack of affordable South Bay housing. That has prompted fears that the Space and Missile Systems Center at Los Angeles Air Force Base might moved out of California.
