Several types of bonds are expected to be used to help finance the redevelopment of a former naval air station south of Boston.

The Navy closed the South Weymouth Naval Air Station in 1997 and authorities plan to transform the site, located about 15 miles south of the city, into a 1,440-acre mixed-use community known as SouthField. The plan calls for 2,855 new housing units and two million square feet of retail and commercial space, along with an 18-hole golf course.
