Og­den de­vel­op­ment has res­i­dents wor­ried

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Og­den

More than a dozen res­i­dents at­tended Mon­day night’s coun­cil meet­ing in Og­den, most of them con­cerned about a de­vel­op­ment project on De­scente 12. “A de­vel­op­ment project is be­ing pro­posed and our build­ing in­spec­tor has given per­mis­sion to a landowner to break up a piece of land into ten lots,” said mayor Michael Sud­low. Cit­i­zens, in­clud­ing the mayor, are con­cerned about how the en­vi­ron­ment will be af­fected by the cut­ting of trees on a slope be­side the lake, the mak­ing of new roads, and how it will af­fect the flow of rain­wa­ter onto other prop­er­ties.

What is of equal con­cern to the res­i­dents is that the said landowner has a rel­a­tive with some lake front prop­erty and that the prop­erty may be used to ac­com­mo­date some of the boats of the new res­i­dents. “Yes, I’m con­cerned with that kind of de­vel­op­ment. We gave no­tice of a mo­tion to pos­si­bly change the us­age of land on the lakeshore to avoid an over-con­cen­tra­tion of ac­tiv­ity,” said Mr. Sud­low.
