9/26/2007 - Los Angeles Air Force Base -- Base officials along with Actus Lend Lease announced the signing of a privatization agreement for base housing at Peterson and Schriever AFBs, Colorado, and Los Angeles Air Force Base, California. This action affects military housing units located in San Pedro at Fort MacArthur, Pacific Crest and Pacific Heights.

"Our goal is to provide an affordable, quality, on-base housing choice for our military families," said Col. Carlos Cruz-Gonzalez, AFSPC Deputy Director of Installations and Mission Support.

"We stand solid in our commitment to providing these families with the high quality homes and amenities they desire and deserve, and we look forward to serving them over the years to come," said Jeffrey Simon, Actus Lend Lease President.

The economic impact designated for Los Angeles AFB includes $12 million to be spent in building a new 4,000-square-foot community center at Pacific Heights as well as major renovations to housing facilities over the next six years. An additional $12 million is expected to be expended in minor renovations (i.e. carpet, tile, counter tops, etc.) over the next six years. Also, $2 million a year is anticipated being spent in salaries, painting and ground maintenance.

Under housing privatization, the Air Force provides a 50-year lease of the property and conveys the existing infrastructure to a private developer. The developer then maintains, renovates and/or constructs communities where military families can choose to live.

For more information on the housing privatization program, contact the LAAFB Public Affairs at 310-653-2371, or for questions regarding Actus Lend Lease, contact Cindy Gersch at 315-486-0239.
