For those who may not be aware there is a proposal going before the Wakefield Planning Board for a commercial venture (Kayak Rental Business) on lakefront property on Bonnyman Road. Below is the PLA Board of Directors response to this proposal.
The PLA board of directors are concerned about any new activity, including the Site Plan Application for Lots 34 & 40 on Bonnyman Rd (the Silver Hill area), that impacts the lakeshore and could result in increased erosion and water quality degradation. Province Lake is currently on the NH Department of Environment Services list of impaired lakes, any development and increased traffic, automobile and boat, would have a negative impact on the lake. The Town of Wakefield has recognized the need to protect this important resource through their continued support of our Lake Host Program.
The Wakefield Planning Board will be reviewing this application on July 19 at 7 pm. Wakefield and Province Lake property owners can express their concerns at the Wakefield Planning Board meeting or through their email Landusecodedept@wakefieldnh.
