MLTPA Comments for Town Council
MLTPA prepared a complete package of specific and actionable comments for Town Council as it considered the Snowcreek VIII Master Plan. Town Council voted unanimously to include all of MLTPA’s final comments in the final Conditions of Approval (COA) for the Snowcreek VIII Master Plan. This includes immediate, permanent protection for public egress from the Sherwins Range and long-term connections to area trails. Take the time to cross-reference MLTPA’s comments with the COA by using the reference numbers cited in MLTPA’s comments and matching them to the item numbers in the COA. (The numbered conditions begin with Section 7 on page 17 of the COA document.)
