Bruce Willis may get his Camas County airstrip after all

Bruce Willis’ construction of an airstrip was halted in September when a lawyer challenged his use of agricultural land. He still might get to build it.

Bruce Willis may get to have his rural Idaho airstrip after all, the Idaho Mountain Express reports.

The airstrip project in Camas County, already underway, was halted in September when Ketchum attorney Ben Worst cited planning and zoning codes that the strip wasn’t in accordance with agricultural use allowed on the property. Now the future of the strip is still uncertain, but officials are seeking a solution, according to the Ketchum-based weekly.

Camas County Planning and Zoning Administrator Dwight Butlin told the Mountain Express that his P&Z is considering a zoning ordinance that would allow airports on agricultural land with a conditional use permit.

The new ordinance would allow such a permit as long as it doesn’t negatively impact “adjacent developed land,” according to the article.
