The North Mankato City Council approved using city staff and materials to construct a landing strip, a wind sock, a sign and a portable toilet for owners of remote-control airplanes. The new facility will be a joint effort by the city, the North Mankato Electric Flyers and the South Central Service Cooperative, which is providing land and parking. The council agreed to construct a 150-foot paved X-style landing strip to promote a recreational opportunity and to draw visitors. "It will bring a number of people to the community because there are very few of these in the area," commented City Administrator Wendell Sande.
