    I agree that thorough biological and wetland/topological studies should be the first phase of any large development to be considered within the Park. Ideally this would involve historical and and current assessments. Flooding, erosion, and wildlife concerns should be paramount to plan design – especially with a proposed development just across the highway from a major river with serious problem already!

    This guy is no dummy. Deja Vu all over again on a smaller scale. This was the ACR playbook to a T, only difference so far is that Stackman isn’t blaming the Environmental Groups for slowing him down and “bleeding him dry”, yet.
    Of course ACR never had any money and didn’t even pay their own Attorneys as we found out years later with the Attorneys suing the ACR for $9M or so.
