Region Residents Express Concerns About Westward Shores Expansion

On July 5 people from across the region got to weigh in on the applica­tion at a planning board hearing that attracted about 65 people. There were com­ments about the impact the expansion could have on the lake water quality, economic im­pact, and safety, but the focus was mainly on the expansion onto the pen­insula. That expansion includes just 15 of the proposed 246 new sites. The campground, locat­ed off Route 16 on New­man Drew Road in West Ossipee currently has 258 sites.
