Prep for launch
Park Manager Tony Tipton has been meeting with the Forestry Service concerning some contested boundary issues in the park. We have come to a tentative agreement on where Hollerwood Park ends and the Forestry Service property begins. We will be posting more signs in these areas to let riders know that they are leaving Hollerwood Park. We will be posting some features that are closed to the border that are included and excluded from the park in a future post.
The board discussed plans for shoring up areas of Little & Big Widowmaker. After much discussion, it was decided that the area needs a silt barrier. The board will be working with the local county governments to get a barrier purchased and installed.
Like a good neighbor
Park Manager Tony Tipton reached out to some of the private land owners regarding some other boundary disputes. After some discussion, he reached an agreement that avoided him pushing trespassing issues on his side as long as the riders are made aware that they have left the park.
Still waiting on the money
The board is still waiting to receive Estill County's portion of the lease payment. Letters have been sent from the County Attorney that currently represents the board to all Judge Executives and Fiscal Courts involved in the project. Members of the board have also made numerous attempts to contact representatives of the Estill County government in regards to the status of this payment. This is a serious issue that puts this project in jeopardy. We encourage all supporters of this project to reach out to the local government officials in Estill County and voice your support for the project. Here are the links you can use to contact these representatives:
