Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Brownley (D-Westlake Village) has introduced a bill (H.R. 2524) that would transfer land from the Department of Homeland Security to Ventura County. The land, which is adjacent to Camarillo Airport, would be used for future airport development, providing opportunities for economic growth in Ventura County.
“The Department of Homeland Security no longer uses this land, so it makes sense to transfer the parcel to Ventura County, which owns Camarillo Airport. The county can in turn use the land to help aviation businesses grow and expand, creating jobs and strengthening our diverse economy here in Ventura County,” said Rep. Julia Brownley. “This land transfer would directly benefit Ventura County businesses and residents by spurring business and commercial opportunities in the region.”
The Camarillo and Oxnard airports contribute more than $300 million annually to the regional economy, supporting more than 2,500 jobs.
