SpaceX gives back land to City of McGregor


The City of McGregor and SpaceX came to an agreement on Monday night regarding infrastructure on the SpaceX property.

The city has approved for SpaceX to donate parts of the land back. This includes areas with water lines, water towers and sewer lines. 

Mayor Jimmy Hering says this is not a sign SpaceX is leaving McGregor, but it is important for the city to get this property back. 

“It returns some infrastructure to us,” Hering says. “It’s going to be very helpful to SpaceX. They needed it, obviously. They installed it. But it’s also going to be helpful for us again in the event that another tenant ends up there. Maybe generations down the road we have that place ready to go.”
