Amanda J. Ashley and Michael Touchton conducted a study to evaluate many important preservation and redevelopment issues that arose in the conversion to civilian use of one of the most historic bases in the nation, the San Diego Naval Training Center (NTC). This case study was part of our broader research agenda where they created a national database of all closed bases in the United States and categorized them based on project type, such as isolated project, complimentary development, and replacement communities. They focused on component-the Civic, Arts, and Cultural District (CACD), as it exemplified so many of the problems that arose when economic interests and constraints unexpectedly collided with historic preservation goals.
