Hi All,
Hi all,

I am a current Manhattanite, that lived for a couple of years in Boise due to family residing there.

I grew up abroad, so i definitely appreciate the diversity of NYC. However, as much as i like NYC, its very difficult here to realize my dreams here due to gigantic capital requirements for property, taxes and red tape. Besides, i have no family in the Northeast, so if i don't travel to Boise, i end up eating pizza for Thanksgiving or Christmas. This is leading me back to Boise.

My goal is not to move to Boise now, but rather have a winter vacation house to avoid freezing NE winters. Also, i can see potential for permanent residence for either retirement (im only 30 so you could say its a bit premature) or if succeed in starting my own tech startup business, in which case i will flee NYC since it will tax the business to death.

All of which leads me to my question.

I am about 2 weeks from closing on my first non-mortgage real estate deal. My goal is to buy 1 (or 2 properties right next to each other) with lots of land within walking distance of my relatives (SW boise) so can eventually build a heliport. Yes, i plan to buy a helicopter to get from SW boise to city limits / hills / snake river / Bogus (?).

Of course, the first thing would be to play nice with neighbors so they don't raise hell. I think 2 acres of land should do the trick for a heliport, but i will have to do more research. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with city code in terms of rules for this sort of thing? Any pilots? I absolutely hate driving or walking because they are too slow (i bike everywhere), so i'm looking for a long-term solution.

When you say "SW Boise" how SW are you talking? I know of at least two "Fly in Communities" in the area. Sunrise Skypark and Red Baron Estates. I am not to sure of the city code, but I can get some info for you.
