I just placed a 40 acre tract of property under contract yesterday. It's 20 minutes SSE of Springfield, MO. It's not a square 40', rather it's two 20's stacked north to south (660'x2640'). It's relatively level and will only require minor tweaking/grading to build a decent landing strip. The purchase is contingent on obtaining a conditional use permit allowing the construction of an airstrip. A process that will begin immediately. The P&Z dept thinks the process will go smoothly...especially since there's another grass strip about a mile west of this property...but one never knows for sure. Anyway, if approved, and purchased, I'd be interested in selling 50% of the property to another pilot or couple whose interests are similar to mine (i.e. want to live in a hangar home and with their plane). I won't be looking to profit, the sale would be exactly 50% of the total cost: purchase price, CUP costs, grading costs (if it's already done), etc., but those exact costs are yet to be determined. Contact me for more details if interested: rivertim(AT)hotmail(DOT)com. This is my spam catching account, and it catches a lot of it, so please put "airstrip" in the subject line or I might never see it. Do not PM me here as I don't hang around here these days. I can afford the whole thing but I think it'd be a lot more fun to have someone else at the other end!
