Planning board conditions: What do you think?
February 13, 2013 - Jessica Collier
Obviously there have been plenty of concerns about the environmental impact of the ACR, but I think most of the regular people in Tupper Lake are most concerned about how the project relates to Big Tupper being opened.
The planning board is trying to ensure that the ski slope will be open to the public and improved as soon as possible. The topic was discussed a lot at the APA level, but most of the responsibility of ensuring it happens was left up to the local level.
Check out the story I wrote today about it.
I find it particularly interesting that the money in the ski area fund will be distributed by a committee of the developer, the entity operating the ski slope and the town supervisor.
Here's a draft of the resolution as it stood at the end of January, with the conditions at the end. Planning board attorney Kirk Gagnier has been working with ACR attorney Bob Sweeney to iron out some details about the conditions, so they are not final, but it gives you a good idea of what they're going for.
What do you think? Do these conditions go too far or not far enough? Do you feel like there are enough safeguards for Big Tupper as the project moves forward?
