THIS AIRSTRIP IS CLOSED AND IS LISTED FOR HISTORICAL AND EMERGENCY PURPOSES ONLY!
In 1954, the Idaho Department of Aeronautics built an airstrip on land owned by the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) along the Cascade Reservoir. A legal dispute regarding an overlying agricultural easement held by a private landowner closed the airstrip to public use in 1970. The land is now under new ownership. The Division of Aeronautics has been working with the BOR to re-open the airstrip for recreational purposes. The Board will be asked to approve proceeding with this recommendation. That involves resolving the payment issue for the needed National Environmental Policy Act and Environmental Assessment requirements, and then applying to the BOR for a long-term permit to open and manage the Cascade Reservoir airstrip. The airstrip would be operated under ITD’s management and would be included in ITD’s recreational airstrip system.
