Swords to Plowshares….The 5,000 acre Concord Naval Weapon Station has been decommissioned and half of the enormous site (2,500 acres) will become part of the East Bay Regional Parks system.  The site includes dozens of existing buildings which will be adapted to new uses.  Among the first of the adaptations is “Building 24” which will be converted for use as a new visitors center. It is rewarding to be part of the transformation of the site from military to peacetime use.
