Lin Tree Inc. of Bandon has yet to finalize a deal proposed to the city of buying Weston property and developing it into an air park.

Doug Cameron of Lin Tree addressed the City Council on Dec. 11 with a proposal to buy land outside the city owned by the Kirk family. He said the development would include a community center, a water-holding facility and other bonuses for the community.

Sheldon Kirk, one of the owners of the property, said the parcel was not listed for sale, but actually has been for sale for some time.

Cameron put up earnest money, which is being handled by his agent, but no money has changed hands. Last week, Cameron filed for an extension, giving Lin Tree Inc. until Jan. 30 to complete the transaction.

"It's in the process of being purchased now," Cameron said. "We have no target date yet, because we don't know what the officials are going to do when we propose it."
