L.A. eyes an El Toro airport
Los Angeles City Council votes to pursue “any and all means” to build an international airport at the former O.C. air base.

Los Angeles city leaders are still determined to see an international airport built at the former El Toro Marine air base, and today they promised a legal fight to make it happen. The City Council voted 11-0 to ask the city Board of Airport Commissioners to pursue “any and all means, including litigation” to force an airport at El Toro.
It leaves unanswered whether a lawsuit could halt or mire the Great Park development plans already under way at the former base.
