BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Southwest Idaho officials approved the building of a private airstrip in the foothills north of Boise in a decision that will become final if not appealed within 15 days.

The Ada County Planning and Zoning Commission at a Thursday meeting gave Dean Hilde the OK to build the 1,200-foot landing strip on about 150 acres as well as a 3,600-square-foot hangar and shop.

If an appeal is filed, it will be heard by the Board of Ada County Commissioners, followed by another public hearing giving Hilde and the public a chance to speak. The decision by the board would be final.

KBOI-TV-reports (http://bit.ly/1SS4ipE) that Hilde says he’ll work with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to mitigate potential problems caused by the airstrip on migrating deer and elk.
