Heitkamp meets with GFAFB commander

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., spoke with the commander of Grand Forks Air Force Base Wednesday about the approval process for the new unmanned aircraft business park at the base, her office said.

She said she and Col. Paul Bauman discussed the lease the military will give the county for the Grand Sky Business Park and opportunities for growth of the unmanned aircraft industry in North Dakota, among other things.

Heitkamp is co-founder of the Senate Defense Communities Caucus.

Grand Forks County recently picked a new developer for the 217-acre park and is still waiting for the Air Force to approve the lease.
