Dave Hisdahl of Wilde River Realty explained the condominium association development project to the board and audience. Karl Kastrosky, county zoning administrator explained the zoning regulations and stated that this project is requesting no variances and has less house density than is actually allowed under the new lakeshore zoning rules. On the property, 12 units now exist and the proposal is to add 8 new single-family homes. Anderson opened the meeting to questions from the audience. Most people spoke with the main concerns being impact to the lake, knowledge about the project and an environmental impact assessment of the project. The timetable is that all information required by the county is expected to be available by July 27 with county zoning hearing scheduled for August 20. The county has zoning jurisdiction in the Town of Delta but requests a recommendation from the town on conditional use permits. Chairman Anderson set the next board meeting for August 14 with Deer Trail Lodge at the top of the agenda.
Anderson moved to deny the request to discontinue a portion of Birch Nest Cove Road. Brilla seconded and the motion carried by voice vote.
Elden Tetzlaff thanked the board for their time considering this matter, but felt the board did not give an adequate reason to keep the road open.

In addition, parcels numbered 016-1074-04 and 016-1075-02 should not be permitted at this time because they border County H and encroach upon residential areas. Barry seconded and the motion carried by voice vote.
