ND Town OKs Building Ban to Deter Aryan Enclave

Posted at: 10/28/2013 10:00 AM

LEITH, N.D. (AP) - Leaders in a small North Dakota town have approved a moratorium on new construction in a move a white supremacist says unfairly targets him.

Craig Cobb has bought a home and 12 other lots in Leith and is encouraging others who want to build an Aryan enclave with him to move there and help him take control of the community.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that city officials are working on an ordinance that will require Cobb to install water and sewer service in his house, where three other male white supremacists and two children also are living. Another ordinance would prevent tents and campers from being on a city lot for more than 10 consecutive days.

Cobb calls the proposals "patently unfair."
