Supervisors in Tate County, Miss., have approved plans for an airpark with a half-dozen homes and a 4,000-foot landing strip. Some neighbors had appealed the Planning Commission's earlier decision to issue necessary permits. "I don't want anyone recreating in my airspace above my house," one resident told the Board of Supervisors. But Calvin DeLap, a member of the Planning Commission, argued that policymakers should make it easier to attract new residents during the economic downturn.
