Hernando County, Florida: Couple to seek approval for private airstrip at planning and zoning meeting

BROOKSVILLE - Planning and zoning commissioners Monday will hear a request from a couple to install a private airstrip on 36.5 acres of homesteaded property off Mondon Hill Road, south of Popiel Road.

The airstrip will be used once a week, and flights will be during the day.

Jeffrey and Cynthia Jones said sound levels associated with the airplane are equivalent to a vacuum cleaner.

The pilot is Federal Aviation Administration-licensed with more than 4,000 hours air time.

The petitioner has indicated aircrafts required by the FAA be thoroughly inspected once a year for maintenance and safety.

The planning and zoning meeting will begin at 9 a.m. Monday at the Hernando County Government Center, 20 North Main St. in downtown Brooksville.
