At the recommendation of the City Council, the City will hopefully be forming a task force soon to work on this importan issue.

Tim Roth Test Post
Here are the facts:
Arcadia State Park was originally acquired to provide not only beach access from its popular parking lot, but for other purposes as well. The land was traded from State Parks to an individual for an acquisition for the new Stub Stewart State park near Venonia. The land is currently zoned for both “Recreational Management” and “Agriculture-Forestry”. The developer is seeking to illegally rezone this property for a quick profit on a subdivision that ultimately would threaten water quality amongst many other watershed and beach issues at this popular recreational area. This former parkland at Arcadia is not accessible by existing water and sewer lines. All water would have to be drawn from small streams or wells above Arcadia Beach. All houses would have to install septic tanks.
