New ‘Big 3’ Edge Toward Norton AFB

The ‘Big Three’ used to refer to three national television networks (if you have to ask, you’re too young to remember). In San Bernardino County, Calif.; however, the big three are UPS, FedEx and Amazon. 

All three logistics giants have set root at San Bernardino International Airport in recent years, fulfilling a grand plan to transform the former Norton Air Force Base into an economic engine for the surrounding area, according to a news release. 

The entire proposition was first discussed almost one year ago. Quite recently, the pair of joint powers authorities that oversee activity at the Third Street airport – the Inland Valley Development Agency and the San Bernardino International Airport Authority – have pushed the project’s goal over the finish line.

The Stars & Stripes adds this, from its military perspective: 

Formed in 1990 — four years before the U.S. Defense Department closed Norton as a military base — the Inland Valley Development Agency handles non-aviation operations, including development projects pitched for the 600 acres at the airport and 14,000 acres nearby.

Adding to the industrial-space progress is The San Manuel Band of Missions Indians, meanwhile, is building a 1.1-million-square-foot warehouse not far from the Amazon Air Regional Air Hub, south of Third Street between Victoria and Central avenues.
