II.        AWARDS / PRESENTATIONS

a)        Town Administrator and Park Commission–Park Plan for CTH CB/East Shady Ln.

Adm. Pat DeGrave, Comm. Dev. Dir. George Dearborn and Parks/Rec. Dir. Ron Krueger presented a conceptual plan in order to stimulate park growth on the northeast corner CTH CB and E. Shady Ln.  A short history was given of the 63 acres of land, the years of planning for commercial property and the eventual stoppage of this development in favor of a town park at the 2001 Annual Town meeting where over 100 citizens present voted to save the development as a town park.

A PowerPoint presentation was presented to the attending townspeople showing a conceptual development plan for approx. 44 lots for single-family homes along with a water detention basin that could also be a duck pond.

 

Strong objections were voiced by Roy Kuehn, Jerry Sitter, Glen Allen, Mike Lynch, Sherrie Bencik and Tom McGee.  They stated they wanted the entire 63 acres to remain parkland. 

Chairman Tews asked the audience for a show of hands for or against the entire 63 acres remaining park and against the conceptual development plan.  The show of hands was over-whelmingly in favor of keeping the entire acreage as park.
