Arawana: Economic Development Commission Meeting

I made my presentation before the Middletown Economic Development Commission Monday night and it was well-received. Also presenting their plans were the ArtFarm people and Blue-Blaze Trail people.

Here is a link to the story in the Middletown Press:


Commission members had no questions for me after the presentation but I talked to a few one-on-one and they appear to like the plan. Commission chairman Gerry Daley, however, wants the Conservation Commission to review all the proposals and report back for the November meeting. The CC has no actual power, but acts in an advisory capacity.

One surprise of the evening came before the meeting began when the Blue-Blaze Trail people and I were in the conference room together. We had a good discussion and it looks like we may have found a way to route the proposed trail through the golf course land in a way that works for both our interests.
