When they apply for the pond permit, the environmental impacts will be identified as part of that process.
Steve Murtaugh, Willow Brook Drive said he has lived there for 45 years and they have only had one water problem. The Highway Department put in a swale 30 years ago. He has no problem with the secondary house. This project will enhance the property and the value of the adjoining properties. They propose to put in a landscape buffer between the properties on Willow Brook. The alternative for the property is to develop 20+ homes that would back right up to the homes on Willow Brook. The plan was presented previously, but not acted upon. He and his wife are all for this project.
