Council unanimously passed a resolution Jan. 23 that states “a significant portion of structures in the Airport Industrial Park are substandard, in a deteriorated condition, unsafe, unsanitary, dilapidated and obsolete and are not conducive to development.” It notes discontinuance of the use of some of the buildings has allowed them to fall into “a great state of disrepair.”
