16 applications were filed for free or reduced land at the closing Willow Grove Naval Air Station.
Among them were the Bucks County Airport Authority, which wants 681 of the available 892 acres, and Montgomery County, which requested up to 540 acres in a separate, but similar, application.

Neither plan suggested turning the airfield into a commercial or cargo airfield with scheduled flights.
But should either proposal be approved, it will leave only a couple of hundred acres left for the township and its reuse authority to develop into taxpaying properties.
