To provide an option to the elected officials, Township engineers developed a cost estimate for bringing sand and opening the Buchanan Street road end. The cost estimate of $45,000± is based upon 2,000 cubic yards of sand being placed over the edge – but remaining at least one foot above the ordinary high-water mark.
The danger or “Con” is that the sand will not be stable and will be heavily eroded over the coming months – due to the steep grade that will exist.
The benefit or “Pro” is that this will allow limited public access at this road end.
The Board has requested that the Township attorney review the Buchanan Street road end agreement at the May 24th work session – which is scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m. This will be a remote meeting vis-à-vis the Zoom platform. Information on the work session will be provided on the Township’s website by Friday, May 21st.
