BRUNSWICK, Maine — The executive director of the agency tasked with redeveloping the former Brunswick Naval Air Station in Maine is being honored by a national organization.

The Association of Defense Communities has awarded its 2011 Base Redevelopment Leadership Award to Steve Levesque from the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority.

The authority has secured commitments from companies that bring the promise of up to 650 jobs, nearly as many as the number of civilian jobs when the base was in operation.

Officials have secured commitments from aircraft manufacturer Kestrel Aviation Company, which intends to spend $100 million, as well as Molnlycke Health Care, Maine Tool and Machine and information technology company Resilient Communications, among others.
