Giant Cargo Airport In Hardee County, FL?

Thu Apr 01, 2004 6:02 am


The article speaks of a developer getting an option on the sale of an additional 10,000 acres in extreme northeast Hardee County. Total acreage under option is now 23,000 acres, or about 7 to 8 times the size of MIA. The county manager says he can't answer who possible users of the airport would be.

yeah someone brought that up a while back. I live in Orlando but I haven't heard any talk about that except for on here.

It makes no sense, they are taking this Build it and they will come approach.

It would make more sense building it around the Miami area like the old Homestead AFB.

I read that too a while back on here also I think. It may make better sense to build it near a region that has a seaport.
