Rausch: National Guard unlikely to buy Windham land

(Continued)

Officials have emphasized they aren’t opposed to the National Guard locating in Windham, just not on that particular parcel.

Gov. John Lynn, in a recent interview, said Windham should have a say whether the National Guard establishes a facility in the community.

“I think it’s got to be with the support of the local community,” Lynch said.

Phillip Miles, chief of property management with the DOT, said the Applewood property is still on the market. The National Guard has not submitted any formal proposal, according to Miles.

The National Guard did not return a phone call.

Developers remain interested in the golf course land.

Karl Dubay, president of The Dubay Group Inc., a Windham-based engineering and planning company, expects a commercial proposal will emerge for Applewood.

“We are working with interested parties on the golf course property,” Dubay said Friday.
