Willmar submits environmental review to secure airport land release from FAA


WILLMAR -- The city of Willmar has completed and submitted an environmental assessment review that officials hope will lead the Federal Aviation Administration to release its authority over the old airport and let the city redevelop it into an industrial park.

The land release formally releases the city from any obligations under previous FAA grant agreements that existed for the airport property, said Bruce Peterson, director of city planning and development services.
