County may return land to BLM
February 13, 2019
A parcel next to the Southwest Wyoming Regional Airport may be given back to the Bureau of Land Management.
Rickey Rocky, Sweetwater County Parks and Recreation board president, said the model RC Airport, which is located on Baxter Road near the airport, is no longer serviceable.
"The rule changes from the Federal Aviation Administration have condemned that space unflyable for RC controlled planes, drones or anything radio controlled," Rocky said.
He said the space was meant to be run by a club or an organization, but no one has shown any interest in using the parcel for years.
