OLD TOWN – President Trump has signed a bill into law that will help Old Town develop the area around the airport.
The city worked with Congressman Bruce Poliquin on an old deed restriction that forbid the city from selling land to potential developers.
The law that removes the deed restriction recently passed the House and Senate and has now been signed by the president.
Old town officials welcome the news.
They said having the land available at the airport for the city to sell is a huge economic boost. Numerous businesses are interested in the property and now the projects can move ahead thanks to the action in Washington.
