It would cost $2.1 billion to build a great urban park at the closed El Toro Marine base, far from the low-cost conversion envisioned by park supporters, according to an analysis released Tuesday by pro-airport forces. Operating costs would run $43 million a year plus $17 million for maintenance, according to the review by BBC Research Consulting of Denver, which analyzed Irvine literature and a city-paid revenue analysis. The pro-El Toro Airport Working Group paid for the $45,000 review.
