Lewiston subdivision talk: New plan sought for Riverwalk

(Continued)

Ritter said one of the biggest question marks, concerning a stone access road installed for emergencies, is covered under a memorandum of understanding with the town and would be paved as part of the final completed development. Massaro added the road isn't even time-effective for any emergency vehicles to use as it would add three to four minutes of driving opposed to using Legacy Drive to gain entry during any trouble situations.

In all, the approval helped push the project, which has gotten caught up in legal proceedings, along.

"This project has had a bit of a (bad) history," Ritter told the board. "We're not trying to cut any corners here. At this pint, this is like a living, breathing thing."

"As things stand now, my company stands to lose more than a million dollars if we can't get people in those houses by January," Massaro said, adding he lives just blocks away from his subdivision, a community he's called home for 20 years.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
