KearneyHub.com reported on Friday, January 21 that the Buffalo County (Nebraska) Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval of a new hangar at Onion Crest Airport. The hangar would be owned by Chris Hilliard to house his two ag aircraft and associated offices and chemicals. The process was not without dissent from neighbors who fear dramatic growth at the airport. There was a failed attempt in 2009, to develop an airpark at the airport. From the story:

“In June 2009, the supervisors denied a request for a special-use permit from [Mark] Meyer that would have allowed construction of 16 houses with private airplane hangars at the airstrip — an $8 million project.”

    I would much rather live with houses than two stinking planes and there chemicals. The smell will be there 50 years from now.
