FOMS supporters will want to attend this important public meeting of the Mount Sunapee Advisory Committee on Tuesday, June 2, 2015, at 9:30 a.m., at the Newbury Town Offices (large conference room), Route 103, Newbury.
The discussion will include input from advisory committee members on the Mount Sunapee master development plan and environmental management plan now under consideration by DRED Commissioner Jeffrey Rose.
The major component of the 2105-2019 plan is the “West Bowl” expansion — ski-resort development that will cut through state-designated “exemplary forest” and extend down Mount Sunapee’s undeveloped western slopes in Goshen. A hearing was held on May 5 to get public comment on the commissioner’s draft decision (released in April) that recommended moving the project forward. At the hearing, most people including FOMS spoke against the expansion and several people expressed strong opposition to the commissioner’s ‘conditional approval’ for construction of a ‘mountain (roller) coaster’ to be located at the resort, in the center of the park.
Okemo/Mount Sunapee Resort will also present its proposed Annual Operating Plan at the meeting.
