In recent weeks, citizens have learned about snags slowing the construction of an industrial park near the Grant County Regional Airport.

All of the familiar culprits - scarce dollars; poor communication; bureaucratic obstacles; lack of a single, point person in charge of project planning - have plagued this effort. Ironically, the proximity of the airport could threaten this much-needed seedbed for industry. State or Federal Aviation Administration rules could thwart the expansion of buildable land which Grant County, and the airport itself, so desperately needs.
