    Airport’s runway

    extension is OK’d

    WILMINGTON — Plans to upgrade and continue the revitalization of a southern Vermont airport have gotten another big boost after Wilmington’s Development Review Board approved a plan that to extend the runway.

    The conditional-use permit issued last week calls for a runway that would be no more than 4,450 feet long and 75 feet wide.

    Much of the airport is in Dover, but a section of the runway is in Wilmington.

    Earlier this year the former Mount Snow Airport was purchased and renamed the Deerfield Valley Airport. It’s part of a broader plan to bring more visitors to the region.

    Officials don’t anticipate bringing in jets larger than eight to 12 seats, the Brattleboro Reformer reported.
