The Tracy City Council has unanimously agreed to negotiate with a Roseland developer for the possible sale of the New Jerusalem Airport on Durham Ferry Road. The discussions with Richland Planned Communities took place during a closed session right after Tuesday’s regular council meeting, but City Manager Dan Hobbs recommended that the council also discuss the matter in an open session so that council members could decide if they would consider releasing control of the city-owned property.
