The Associated Press
LONDONDERRY (AP) — Officials in Londonderry have signed off on a plan that could result in a wealth of jobs and revenue near Manchester-Boston Regional airport.
The Eagle-Tribune reports that the town council adopted an airport infrastructure plan on Monday to develop a large parcel of about 1,000 acres of unused land.
Town Councilor Tom Dolan says developers will bring jobs and new businesses that will boost state and local coffers.
Officials say the $3.4 million project will create two new roads leading into the new airport infrastructure district. It will be located on land south of the airport.
Town Manager Kevin Smith says one company could bring some 500 jobs to town.
