Cherry Avenue Illegal Vehicular Access

A discussion was initiated by John McClelland regarding the illegal vehicular access occurring on Cherry Avenue. The only authorized vehicular access on Cherry Avenue is by the property at 108 Ridge Road due to a past agreement between the Chapmans and the Town to utilize the Avenue until such a time that the property be sold.

Recommendations include construction of a fence behind 105 Maple Road or a locked gate be installed at Brown Street on Cherry Avenue.
