Duffy’s has been approved by the FAA to improve and expand the runway into the adjoining 100 to 220 acre BLM land which could become a part of Duffy’s as a inexpensive lease from BLM which would also be used for Emergency Services. What value can be put on the saving of lives after accidents or illnesses. Value of this land: Priceless!
Be certain to click the “What Are The Possibilities” page to look at some of our thoughts about the ideal uses for Duffy’s including the additional 100 to 220 acres of adjoining land to expand the runway for emergency services. Duffy’s offers enormous potential for someone who wants to start a business or several businesses and it would be prudent for us to seriously consider any ideas or offers, and we will.
