An update of possible plans for the area...The plans are Carter Terenzini " be everything to all people " and will ruin a swimming area. Those plans should have gone with Carter. They take a WATERFRONT swim area, which is already short on space, and build DISNEYLAND EAST. Disney does not need waterfront land. Pander to the masses....we must stop the Carter plan, and re-examine with a clean sheet of paper. The days of our being led by one man's opinion are OVER. Wakeup.

House Clean - Lake Clean said...

This started with ' clean up the muck in the water so we can swim '. Where did that idea go? Square one must be the hire of a professional lake remediation engineer, and restore the swimming. The day of our T A ' expert on everything ' is gone. That's how we created so many problems.....control freak...instant expert. Wakeup BOS, put this back on the table. The leftovers should crawl out of the refrig. Let them go....they stink.

For SB-2 ASAP said...

Another example of why we need SB2. 200 odd people spent $50,000 of our tax monies to get rid of silt, weeds, mud, algae and milfoil, plus create a Central Park type atmosphere for the few Town residents who live near Suissevale, which already has a good beach and park area.

The existing park and boat ramp were adequate for the minimal use States Landing gets. Clean up is one thing, but 50K to rebuild, I really have to wonder???

For SB2. The entire Swissvale project was $ 750,000. Seven Hundred Fifty THOU. Dredging dead leaves est.$ 350,000. And Disney and roads and boat ramp another $ 400,000 or so. The fifty grand you mention was " engineering "
There is consensus that the lake bottom is not like it used to be...need an expert to see if it can be saved..

This is NOT a Suissevale beach. The beach is for Moultonboro residents who chose not to drive down the Neck Road to Long Island Beach. States Landing is a beautiful piece of town owned property that's been neglected. Before the town buys more parcels of land the town should take care of what it already owns.
