LARAMIE - The Laramie Regional Airport is moving ahead with construction of a business park.
The Professional Airpark and Research Center is being built on land between the airport and Highway 130. It already has one building and one tenant, Delta Nu.
Airport board chairman George Krell said the airport is working to attract more tenants. He said three other tenants are thinking about moving to the business park and said there are plans to subdivide the property.
Krell said the airport board also is considering the idea of including a spaceport that could be used eventually for horizontal takeoff vehicles. Although he said development of space travel has accelerated recently, he said that starting such a venture in Laramie would be a long way off.
