Paying the man
We made out lease payment. There was some initial confusion involving addresses and locations, but all that was resolved and we did pay our lease; so we are good until next fall.
We've been working on resolving the issues on our western border. We reached out with our adjoining land-owners and were able to come to an agreement on the boundary lines. This is a big deal because land border disputes can be complicated and expensive. We're just gad we have good neighbors who are willing to work with us and are as excited as we are to see this park open.
Divide and conquer
We still have a few outstanding border issues. Our park manager, Tony Tipton, plans on addressing these one at a time in order to get them resolved in a timely manner. With the help of some outside groups, we think our research has given us all the information we need in order to approach the right people for each dispute. As you can imagine, property that has been bought, sold, traded, and acquired so many times leaves a myriad of land deeds in its trail. Tracking these down has been one tedious task, but that's what it takes to get these issues resolved so we can meet the rest of our target dates.
Stop, drop, and roll(cage)
Since we've resolved some of out border issues, the board discussed putting up boundary signs along the trails to indicate when riders are leaving the property and which property they're going to be on (private property, public road, forestry service, etc.). All riders must follow the signs in order for us to maintain a good relationship with our neighbors. Penalties for violating these signs will likely be severe as it would adversely affect the entire community.
We've posted the next meeting on Facebook. We encourage everyone to attend, particularly if you have questions or concerns you'd like to voice to the board.
