2. There is a regulation that there canít be any construction, grading changes or landscape changes within 150í of the lake. Everyone is held to this restriction, including the proposed WOW Trail.
The simple answer is to plow over the property on "the other side of the tracks".... that is, the side away from the lake (towards SD) ....100% legal and the State of NH owns the property (Read NOT SD)!

If the State/City does now own the ROW then they should take it by Eminent Domain! It seems that would be cheaper than allowing the .5%ers to dictate what the state should do with property that WE already own.
