Final Plan for Sunapee’s West Bowl Expansion Set for Thursday
The final plan for Mt. Sunapee’s West Bowl expansion will be presented on Thursday. Commissioner of the Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED), Jeff Rose will meet with the Mount Sunapee Advisory Commission on Thursday at 10 am at the Newbury Town Offices.
A draft for the expansion was presented to the advisory board last April. In May of 2015 over 80 area residents gave input on the draft plan. Most comments from those opposed cited destabilizing the sensitive natural areas, conditions of the Brook Road in Goshen, mixing privately owned and state owned land, and higher taxes. Proponents of the expansion cited regional economy, and adding land to the state park. Commissioner Rose will be on WUVR on Friday at 7:20 am.
