Minot AFB to host private housing developers

Associated Press

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Developers are scheduled to visit the Minot Air Force Base later this month to discuss the construction of private housing.

Base officials say the Defense Department is promoting the privatization of housing nationwide because of the poor condition of government buildings and the shortage of quality affordable private housing.

The Minot Daily News reports that the tour for developers had been scheduled earlier, but was delayed because of the economy and because the state's congressional delegation had questions about the private housing plan.
