Lisbon Town Council reverses earlier decision, supports new road at Lisbon Campground


LISBON — A new road likely will be installed at the Lisbon Beach and Campground after the Town Council reversed its earlier decision to oppose its construction.

At Thursday’s meeting Councilman Alan D. Dailey said that after hearing from constituents, he supports the idea of building a road to bypass the campground and provide direct access to the boat launch.

Councilman Gary J. Jarvis said his understanding is that town residents want to see the money made at the campground reinvested in its growth.

The beach and campground made about $28,000 in profit this year.

Councilwoman Susan M. Duffy recommended using some of the $125,000 the town made from the sale of land at Sparrow Hawk Point for upgrades at the beach as well.

Mr. Dailey said he would be in favor of using roughly $40,000 to build and pave a road that would make access to the boat launch easier.

The Town Council asked Highway Superintendent Timothy G. Dow to come up with a detailed cost analysis for the project.

Ms. Duffy said it “would be great” if the road could be installed before the campground opens again in the spring. She also recommended planting more shade trees and renovating the campground’s boat launch in the near future.
