Dear Mr. Principi:
I wish to express my support tbr the BRAC recommendations made by the Secretary of
Del'cnse to create a Naval Integrated Weapons and Armaments RDAT&E Center at China
Lake and to realign the Sensors, Llectronic Warfare and Electronics RDAT&E from Point
Mugu to China l.ake. These forward looking recommendations fully support the Secretary's
goals to position the country's base infrastructure to meet our armed forces transformation
needs for the 2 1 " century.
The Ridgecrest community is looking forward to the arrival of the additional uniformed and
civilian employees and support contractors. I have lived in the Ridgecrest, California
community for twenty-five years and have beconie fariiliar with the land, air and water
supply and quality in the area. I am certain that Ridgecrest can accept and sustain the growth
anticipated from the current BRAC without degradation of the quality or supply of any of
these valuable assets. The community ollicials have prepared for the growth-contingency
and are prepared to support the new arrivals.
We are a Navy town that supports our base and its users from our own services and our allies.
I urge your approval of the Secretary's recommendations regarding China Lake.
