Attorneys for the Town of Ossipee, Northgate Resorts, and campers who are suing both entities appeared at an evidentiary hearing last week in the slow-moving case.
The sport of wakeboarding isn’t new, but its rapid growth has created conflict. Now a diverse group of lake stakeholders will examine whether education or regulation or both are what’s needed.
Northgate Resorts will take over the Glen campground, according to seller Dick Goff. Northgate also owns Westward Shores Campground on Ossipee Lake, and Mi-Te-Joe Campground in Milton.
A Superior Court judge last week ruled in favor of Westward Shores campers by granting them standing in their lawsuit against Northgate and the Town of Ossipee. But she deferred a decision on class action certification, pending an evidentiary hearing at which the campers must present evidence of the campground’s alleged deceptive business practices.
Starting this week, drivers can expect cones and barrels, grading and paving, and stretches of one-way traffic as the state ramps up its bridge replacement project on Route 16.
