Citizen Participation: Ted Benson wondered about the revival of the airport rumor. Anderson said his conversations with the DNR suggested that this would not happen anytime in the near future.
Todd Bucher then presented to the board his plan for the Delta Diner to be located at the site of the DELTA sign. Three concerns for the board will be a variance request for a reduced setback from the road, parking sited on the right-of-way and the possible future request for rezoning of parcel across Co. H from Forestry-1 to Commercial.
Pat St. Germain explained his attempts at obtaining legal access to his 80-acre property west of Bass Lake. Joan Cervenka, representing the Forest Service, explained that the forest service will only build a new road access to the parcel if all other options have failed. St. Germain then presented to the board an Affidavit pursuant to Wis. Stats. 80.13 that specifies that the town board shall designate the road to a landlocked parcel. The board accepted the affidavit and set a hearing date for January 15, 2003 at 6:00 p.m. at the town hall.
