Ideas exchanged at third Community Conversation

By Bob Johnson
Reporter for the Topic

Strategies to develop the local economy and to improve City Park dominated the discussion at the third community conversation meeting held March 26. The meeting was hosted by Timber Lake & Area Development and the Timber Lake Topic.

Mayor Clyde Pfeifle reported that city personnel are considering two options to deal with the frequent flooding at the city park. One option is to add fill and raise the level of the current park location while the other is to move the park west to a higher elevation. The goal of either option is to add facilities and increase the usefulness of the park. Pfeifle presented a general vision of playground equipment, campsites, RV hookups, picnic shelters and horseshoe pits, along with proper lighting and rest rooms.

City Council wants more info on Family Dollar Store

After hearing another request from Dale LaCompte regarding a proposed Family Dollar Store to be built on his property, the Timber Lake City Council responded Monday night with a request of their own. They told LaCompte they would like to hear from a representative of the company that wants to build the building.

“It shouldn’t be your burden,” council member Lilian Turcotte said.

LaCompte had asked at the February meeting and again Monday that the alley in Block 5 be vacated and that the council pass a motion stating that the builders would not be required to pave the outer boundary of the lots. They would like to pave only half of the streets so their trucks can get into the parking lot easily, he said.
