Citizens issue petition to stop primitive camp
Plans for a primitive campground near the city boat landing ran into a roadblock at a regular Cornell City Council meeting Sept. 7, after residents on Park Road voiced their displeasure. Council members addressed concerns after a petition to reject the campground proposal was brought forth with 40-some signatures.
The document states that those who signed, are opposed to the project because of a possible increase in nighttime noise, litter and smoke, as well as a decrease in property value, loss of fishing access to shore hotspots, and lack of supervision and patrols.
Tom Bement, who lives directly across from the proposed site, says campers would be around 377 feet from his bedroom window.
