Medora considers airstrip: Attendees express mixed feelings at public hearing


MEDORA — A lot can happen in 20 years — just ask Doug Ellison.

Medora’s mayor said at a public hearing here on Saturday he signed a petition against an airport study in 1994, but that he’s more open to the idea today.

“My personal thoughts are that I’d like to see something more conservative,” Ellison said. “I like the idea of an airstrip, but I’d like to see one with a minimal impact — not a huge paved runway. We would know more after a study.”
