The Gainesville City Council approved a lease agreement Tuesday with Kubota Manufacturing of America, granting the company access to city-owned land in exchange for site improvements.

Kubota plans to build a test course for high-performance RTV series utility vehicles on property off Fullenwider Road.

The lease is for $10 per year with a commitment from Kubota to make onsite improvements, such as paving the road, in exchange for using the property.

An original proposal called for the city to receive an RTV free of charge from Kubota, but those plans have now been scrapped, officials said.
