A member of the federal base closing and realignment commission will tour Pascagoula Naval Station on June 16.

Jackson County officials also will make a presentation July 12 at a BRAC hearing in New Orleans.

Naval Station Pascagoula and the Lakeside Naval Support Unit, which is a residence for crews for ships being built at Northrop Grumman, are scheduled for closing in the 2005 BRAC list.

About 180 civilian employees are affected by the proposed closing.
